Up to 5 people
Hosted in English

What you'll do

Within a few hours, you will be able to construct your own pair of leather sandals. From there, you can decide on a style you would like to make within the time given then cut and construct your own pair of sandals onto either a leather or padded soles. The types of style you get to make varies as you can either discuss designs before coming to the experience or on the day itself. Some of the leather straps will be pre-cut in various styles and sizes beforehand to get a head start constructing your creations.

I have collected leather from various sources, mostly reclaimed from different projects to offcuts from manufacturers. While constructing your sandals, we can either chat or indulge in the refreshments provided.

The timing of the experience is just indicative, you can stay as along as you need to finish your shoes and also, the start time is flexible.
Other things to note
After booking, send me your shoe size (EU or UK). You can send me your foot measurements as well if you are unsure of the size. This is so I can prepare the soles before the experience begins.

Meet your host, Lixian Lisa

Host on Airbnb since 2012
  • Identity verified
My name is Lisa from Lisa Teng Studios. During the past few years, I studied Footwear Design and Making in London, UK. Moving back to tropical Singapore, I worked with a maker space and started running my own company, taking on customisation orders for small leather products and making footwear (shoe) for customers and running experiences (workshops). I enjoy forming new ideas by combining traditional and modern techniques and creating new products for short workshops such as making espadrilles (plus more products coming up!). Plus, I like conversing with participants, bouncing ideas.
