Felted Boots for indoor and outdoor use (Peter Yencken): In this class you will make a pair of felt boots using wool and the wet felt method. Wet felting can be defined as the process of continually rubbing wool fibers together with mild soap and warm water to form a firm, felted object. (Felting is the consolidation of certain fibrous materials by the application of heat, moisture, and mechanical action, causing the interlocking, or matting, of fibers possessing felting properties.) You will also make rubber sole which can be taken off for indoor use. 2 days. $240 Register here to make Felted Boots. 

Leather shoes of the Mocassin style with removable leather or rubber sole (Peter Yencken): Cut and stitch your own leather shoes, specific to your foot. Choose between removable leather sole ($230) and removable rubber sole ($220). 2 day project. Register here to make Leather Shoes.
