Make Your Own with The Shoe Camaraderie

9th October, 2017

A new workshop for slow fashion supporters and leatherwork lovers makes its way down the East Coast, beginning in Brisbane this weekend.

Shoemaker Lisa Turnbull is devoted to the life-long pursuit of learning new things. And we’ve got some good news for you, if you are too, because this wonderful Brisbane-based shoemaker has just launched her own series of shoemaking workshops for beginners!

In a hat-tip to the slow fashion movement, the bespoke footwear craftswoman seeks to create a setting for like-minded individuals to meet, mingle, and enjoy the introductory steps of shoemaking in a light-hearted and supportive environment.

Over her full-day workshop, participants (capped at six total) get to learn the skills and finishing techniques to produce a pair of sandals from their choice of five styles and four leather colourways, all from go to whoa!

‘OoOoo Where’d you get those?’ asks captivated friend.
‘Actually… I made them myself!!’
(Awe abounds)

Lisa’s first workshop will be held in Brisbane on October 14th, followed by dates in Sydney and Melbourne throughout October and November. Hop over to The Shoe Camaraderie website for more information and to get your feet closer to some pretty special summer sandals.
