Make Your Own Leather Shoes - One Day Workshop

Workshops can be booked through our Fareharbor system, available on our homepage

Come and kit yourself out with some handcrafted leather shoes based on archaeological prehistoric finds from northern Europe.

Using vegetable tanned leather, you’ll cut a pattern to fit your feet and learn to stitch, lace and shape the shoes until they’re comfortable (and stylish!). Share tales and stories by the fire as you work away in the tranquil setting of our loch shore. We’ll look after you with an offering of a hearty lunch and refreshments served to you from our Iron Age kitchen. You’ll go away prepared for trekking the highlands in your finished leather shoes to take away home.

Come along to our other outfit workshops to complete your Iron Age Outfit!

Course details:

The course will begin at 9.30am when you will have a hot drink and a chance to explore the site.

Visit our the museum to see the Crannog textile and ancient drop spindles, and unique and extraordinary textile-related artefacts.

Refreshments are available throughout the day, including a traditional, hearty lunch from our Iron Age kitchen and our unique Crannog cake.

Each workshop will take place in a cosy spot by the loch giving you that special Crannog Centre experience.

The workshops will be finished by 6pm and you will leave with your handmade Iron Age item completed to take home, as well as new skills, new connections, an information booklet, and memories of a unique immersive prehistoric experience in our stunning museum setting nestled in the hills and lochs of Highland Scotland.
