Description
As a companion to Before They Wore Turnshoes, this class will cover the basics for how to draft a pattern for a late Iron Age/Migration Period shoe made from a single piece of leather. Starting with a well-preserved historical example from modern-day Germany, we will go over the steps involved to adapt the pattern to an individual's foot and discuss various tips and tricks to ensure a good fit and historically accurate appearance, as well as "care and feeding" of this type of shoe.
