Since 1995, Carl has been offering a “Basic Boot Making” seminar to anyone interested in the fine art of boot making. Three times a year, Carl leads the two-week, intensive course where you learn to do everything (measuring feet, boot design/calculations, selecting leather, pattern design, stitching, sewing, lasting, pegging, sanding, staining, finishing, etc.) from start to finish. Advanced boot making classes, one-on-one teaching, mule (aka “chick boot”) instruction, leather tooling, boot repair, and machinery repair courses are also available. Contact Carl for more information.
