Make Your Own Moccasins

Hand stitch your own Moccasins with Doris!

About this experience

If you've ogled beautiful bead work earrings or moccasins and want to learn to work with these materials, we've got the class for you!


In this class you will learn to hand sew your own moccasins with on leather. This is a two-day class spread across two Sundays. This allows for a little homework time, if you want to add  beadwork in between classes! We won't be beading the moccasins in this class- please register for Intro to Beading to learn those skills!

All materials are included in the class fee.

Doris Weiselein is an Elder of Cree descent, born and raised in Northern Manitoba but living in the Comox Valley for 62 years. She's been a force for positive change in the Comox Valley, volunteering countless hours and working with various organizations.

She has taught beadwork and sold her creations for over 35years and is excited to share at The Spool! This fall series is a great opportunity to learn from a master, starting with beadwork and going all the way to making your own moccasins.

Three scholarship spaces are available to folks of indigineous descent, if you would like to claim a space, please send me a message 

We require a minimum of 10 students to run this class, so in case of low registration, we will reschedule to another Sunday.

Kids ages 10+ are welcome, if they are registered alongside an adult. Teens 15+ don't require an adult.
