Making Shoes the Old Fashioned Way

My oldest daughter, Katherine, has the hands-on creative bug like me, and in her case it shows up in her interest in making historical leather shoes from scratch using the old methods. (She also makes and wears corsets, but that’s another story).

The video below goes through the process of how Katherine made one particular pair of shoes, and what she’s learned from previous shoemaking projects. It’s not often you see someone under 30 years old with an interest like this. I think you’ll find it worthwhile seeing what she’s up to. Click below to watch.
