I made these boots at a 4 day workshop last summer in OR. I always wanted to try being a cobbler. It was fun but very physically hard on my hands and pricey, too. But now I have some cool boots fitted to my feet with lots of toe room and they’re perfect for Ren fest. Check out Laughingcrowe.com. Very friendly and good teacher. He teaches in MN sometimes, too. I might make another pair of shoes in the future.
