Arts and Arms Making Workshops

Cordwaining: The Art of Making Shoes

Explore the world of historic trades at Conner Prairie’s annual Arts and Arms Making Workshop as you work alongside some of the nation’s best craftsmen.

Treat your feet to a pair of custom-made shoes. Work with cordwainer Cliff Pequet to learn the process of making custom footwear from tracing and patterning your feet, to creating a last (a custom built wooden block shaped like your foot), to finishing the shoe with handstitched seams and scraping in the heel. You pick the style of shoe you make from historic brogans to something with a contemporary look. All tools for the class will be furnished. A materials fee of approx. $75 will be paid to the instructor at the time of the class. Please note, this class meets October 6-10 from 8am-5pm; and October 11 from 8 am-12 pm. By clicking on "purchase tickets" below, you are able to register once for all sessions.
