What's Included

Make your own chic pair of hand-crafted ballet flats with the fabulous cobbling expert, Emily Putterman-Handler! A classic stylish pattern keeps this workshop short while still giving you the basics in shoe construction! Not only will you be learning the same techniques the masters use, but the choices for leathers, fabrics and trimmings are boundless! You will purchase your supplies separately and the supply list will be discussed at the first class. Sign up with a friend for a fun fall activity and then grab a late dinner at any of the terrific Williamsburg restaurants on Grand Street. Bio: Emily Putterman-Handler, affectionately known in the industry as the guru of shoemaking, has been performing her magic for over twenty years. She has taught the joy of shoemaking to many students through her 21 years at the Fashion Institute of Technology, Hunter College , Pratt Institute and Parson's School of Design. Emily was also the footwear consultant for the show "Project Runway Accessories".
