The Autumn 2023 shoemaking class for returning shoemakers has been filled. Thank you all for your patronage and for getting the word out. Your enthusiasm to learn and ambition to hone your skills inspires us all.
Starting on Sunday, August 27, 2023, I will teach another sandal making class at the John C. Campbell Folk School. The class runs through September 2nd. Last year we got so much attention and so many compliments. Come and learn to make sandals that you design specifically for the size and shape of your feet. Bring embellishments from home to personalize your sandals or choose from my collection of buttons, beads and semi-precious stones gathered over a lifetime. I will introduce as many shoemaking techniques I can into the course.
Last year we had questions like: Is this an advanced class? The answer is ‘no’. You, too, can make yourself a custom pair of sandals for your feet, no matter what the size.

Reserve your spot now for my beginner shoemaking classes that start in January. See the Toe River Studio Tour booklet that is out now for the Autumn tour. My ad is on page 10.
Class size is limited to five. Let me know if you have availability for other days of the week. I will open additional sections for the class as the seats fill. Early registration recommended.

I got some publicity in Mountain Xpress for Deborah’s School of Shoemaking. I recently dreamt up this image of me posing as the Virgin of the Guadalupe and using lasts as the light rays from my halo. I’m so pleased Mountain Xpress used my photo and what an honor for my new school to be featured. Check out my School page because classes are forming all the time. Gather some friends together and we can have a class time whenever works for you.
