We are a gallery/studio/school teaching a full range of leather arts including footwear construction: Education and resources for the creative community.

At the Chicago School of Shoemaking, we are passionate about passing on the delight and excitement of such an important and unusual skill. Shoemaking has been described in our culture as a “lost art”. But now you can find it here in Chicago. Whether you love shoes, love working with your hands, or are interested in the independence and sustainability of providing such an essential item for yourself –We welcome you at the Chicago School of Shoemaking.
