Shoe Pattern Making
Duration: 3 hours; $120; Shoe Pattern Making: Some things never change! Though shoemaking has become digitized in many respects due to the use of programs like CAD for shoe structure creation, Pattern Making stubbornly remains a physical art. Come down to Brooklyn Shoe Space for a primer on pattern design, in which you'll measure and cut entirely by hand to create the exterior of your perfect pair of shoes. This 3 hour class will teach you all of the pattern-making basics. Start by learning how to select colors and patterns that work well together. Then, learn how to measure, cut, and finally -- how to sew! During your first class you'll work on upper patterns; during the second class, you'll finish the lining and work on the sole pattern.
