the workshop

The Shoe Camaraderie is a one-day women's sandal making workshop, offering participants a relaxed environment to gain some new skills and finish with their own pair of handmade footwear!

Each workshop day will consist of up to 6 students (max) so that Lisa can spend ample time with everyone, guiding them throughout the experience. There will be several sandal styles to choose from which can be made in black, white or tan leather; you choose! 

The classes will be organised in and around Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Perth and Auckland (NZ), but are not limited to these locations.

Please email if you have missed out on any of the workshops but would love to be kept in the loop for any upcoming ones in your area!
