I've been making custom made shoes and boots for 42 years. 6 years ago, I founded the Chicago School of Shoemaking and have created classes and workshops to promote learning shoemaking, leatherworking skills and other footwear projects. Our goal for the school is to provide an environment that is creative, supportive and empowering while offering skills toward cottage industry and enhancing lifestyles through creative hands-on projects. Our Vocational Training Program starts in 2018.
