Natalya Brashovetskaya, well-known fiber artist and master footwear maker, will be lecturing a short felted boot session at the end of July 2022. 

Natalya, a native of Ukraine living in Cyprus, will be sharing much information throughout the workshop. Her unique technique for making footwear produces a durable, comfortable boot that will be ready for your individual design.

Create your own pattern, according to your measurements and learn to master methods of classic shoe making that have been skillfully adapted to felting. Your finished boot will be water resistant with an inner sole and a stiff shoe back or heel box. This class will provide you with the knowledge and tools to create and customize footwear in the future. Bring your creative ideas and designs to make short boots that will be beautiful and last a lifetime!
