This Winter I had the absolute pleasure of taking the Leatherwork 101 class at the Chicago School of Shoe making with Master Cobbler of over 35 years, Sara McIntosh. Described in our culture as a lost art, The Chicago School of Shoemaking is a new school for an old craft. They are passionate about passing on the delight and excitement of an unusual skill.
One of my favorite experiences to date was being featured on Chicago’s WCIU-TV You & Me This Morning Show “Made in Chicago” Segment in April of 2012. The segment is featured weekly and covers some of the brightest entrepreneurs and best products made in Chicago. It was the first time I opened my studio workspace to the scope of the public eye. I usually work with my feathers in a quiet retreat listening with my favorite music. The segment producer Dartise Johnson called, and I was delighted to make time for the opportunity.
