Fall on the west coast. It may not be as spectacular as the east but it sure is pleasant and mild. I made it back to Portland to study shoe making again and finished my third pair of shoes. Once more I studied with Jason Hovatter at Laughing Crowe Leatherworks. And once more I’m delighted with the results. I’ve found the whole shoe making process to be incredibly empowering. So much so that I’m now in the process of getting set up so that soon I will begin teaching others to make their own shoes.
