Upcycle your shoes with decoupage

Makers Make – Gabriela Schulman

We all have shoes we don’t wear any more – maybe we are bored with them, the colour isn’t right, or we like them so much that we have worn them out. This is your chance to give them a new lease of life! Once you’ve learned the technique, you will be able to upcycle other pairs at home.
During this workshop you will select papers from Gabriela’s collection to transform a pair of shoes into your unique creation through decoupage.

What you learn

You will be guided through the design process and learn how to decoupage thin paper onto a flexible surface.

What you make

You will take home a pair of upcycled shoes. Please note that you should have enough time to complete a pair of shoes or sandals but boots take longer and if that is your choice it’s likely you’ll have to finish them at home.

We Provide

All materials. You need to bring an old pair of shoes or sandals made from leather or plastic, with as little embellishment as possible. If in doubt, bring a couple of pairs and we can choose the best one once you’re here.
