Expedition Footwear: Making Hide & Canvas Mukluks

Course Overview

Remember the last time your feet were too cold to enjoy wonderful wintry weather? Do away with rigid unbreathable footwear and discover the traditional footwear of the north: mukluks. The flexibility of the natural materials used in construction allows the foot to generate heat, and a breathable layering system allows moisture to escape. In this course you’ll be guided through the process of pattern making, and handcraft your own pair of hide mukluks with knee high or shorter uppers. Booties or liners must be purchased or made before the workshop. Some sewing experience is helpful but not necessary.
