Pampootie Shoe Making

“Walk as if you are kissing the Earth with your feet.” – Thich Nhat Hanh

We will gather together in circle and ceremony to embody the beauty-makers we are and to craft soles to carry out souls. You can make two types of Pampooties, a traditional or for a small extra fee you can add an outer sole for stability & longer use.

In this full-day class you will learn how to make a variation of wearable pampooties, shoes originally from Ireland, in your own unique design consisting of a single piece of leather folded around the foot and stitched with twine or a leather strap. We will learn a new skill: pattern-making and working with leather which you can later share with others. You will leave with your pattern sized for your future pampootie-making, new knowledge, a sense of satisfaction and beautiful handmade shoes to carry you on your path.

Making ones own shoe allows greater connection to the Earth and self-intimacy as we allow ourselves to connect and feel the elements in a new way.
