Leather Moccasin Workshop

The moccasin was, and still is renowned the world over for quietness, flexibility and just feeling closer to nature. Ellsworth Jaeger in his book, Wildwood Wisdom tells us that moccasins are “the best natural footwear that has ever been devised. The moccasined foot can feel it's way along the trail and are light and warm at night. Moccasined feet are like the pads of animals”. Jim Riggs author of the Blue Mountain Buckskin manual says quite simply, ”buckskin moccasins give you magic feet!"

During this two day workshop you’ll learn about designing this lightweight, comfortable and extremely packable foot wear. You’ll be shown several different stitches and seam types, using needle and thread and also leather thonging to sew your moccasins. 
 
You will be given soft and flexible grain on leather to work with (please specify a preferred colour). Paint on rubber soling, water proofing wax and leather working tools will also be provided. 
If you have your own finished buckskin and would like to use this to make your moccasins from please bring it along.  Alternatively if you would like to learn how to make buckskin before the workshop please get in touch as this is also available as a private workshop.
 

Each working day will begin at 9am sharp and we’ll aim to finish at 5pm daily, however please be prepared to put in some extra hours in the evening if required.

All tools, materials and hot drinks are provided however, please bring your own food for the duration.

If you wish to stay locally, the nearest villages are Tisbury, Hindon & Chicklade. If you would like to camp over in the woods, please mention this when you book.

This workshop can be booked as private training for groups of two or more people. Please get in touch to choose your own date
