the workshop

The Shoe Camaraderie is a one day workshop filled with fun, good conversations, learning a new skill and finishing with your own made-by-you sandals!

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

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