Western Boot Making

Our western boot making class focuses on traditional western boot making. It is a three week course with Sundays off, and is limited to three students. During this class you will learn all the steps from custom fitting a last to finishing your boots. You will make one pair of calf skin boots with one row of decorative stitching. You will have a variety of colors to choose from for your vamps, tops & piping. This class is devoted to skills and techniques of making custom boots, so there will be no inlay or over lay on your boots; however, we will cover and practice inlay and overlay techniques.
