Creating shoes can be a very laborious process, and creating felted shoes is your work multiplied by 2. If you have already felted shoes in the past, then you understand the work involved in the process.  But what if you could get a high-quality, beautiful, but most importantly very comfortable pair of multi-season shoes made of felt but with half the effort expended?  Come to our workshop, and you will be very pleased with the result!  After this class, making shoes from any material will be easy for you!

Renowned fiber artist Natalya Brashovetska has developed a new technique for making felted shoes starting with flat felt. If you have taken previous boot classes from Natalya, this class will be different. If you have been hesitant to do a boot class in the past because of how much felting is needed, this class uses flat felt and will be less demanding. 

Natalya is a Ukrainian born feltmaker and designer who lives in Cyprus. She creates custom-designed cloths and footwear from handmade felt, using classic shoemaking techniques that were passed on from her father. She has great passion in her work and loves helping others achieve excellence in their felting.
