Moccasin Making: One Piece Side Seam March 16-17th, 10am-6pm both days Taught by Richard Pashu Esquibel
The ultimate in minimalist footwear! There is no shoe that can match the stealth, comfort or light weight of a soft buckskin moccasin. Though the word's origin comes from the eastern woodlands, it has become generalized to refer to the many unique styles of ancient footwear worn in North America. The one piece side seam is a simple and durable pattern used by several indigenous groups. In this two day moccasin making workshop, I'll teach from my 20 years of experience making and wearing ancient footwear. Participants will use traditionally tanned buckskin and ancient tools to make a pair of their own moccasins. There's nothing better than a custom fit, and the skill of making shoes will stay with you for a lifetime.
