I just posted a new Lesson on Mid 16th C. Mules (Cork). This was a fun project, and I enjoyed the clean lines of the heel and the outsole. Enjoy!

|I just posted a new Lesson on Early 16th C. Cow Mouth Shoes, or Kuhmaulschuh. The tricky thing about these shoes is handling the “knob” type of construction at the tip of the toe. Enjoy!|
|I just posted a new Lesson on Late 16th C. Wedges (Cork). This lesson is based upon some engravings done in the late 16th C. of corked shoes which have a bit of a wedge heel.
These shoes have a carved cork interior acting as the wedge, and an extended rand which envelopes the cork wedge (often referred to as “envelope” construction). Enjoy!
|I just posted a new Lesson on Late 16th / Early 17th C. Heels (Timber). This lesson is based upon the 1600s whitawed heels in the Ashmolean museum in Oxford.
Although the extant heels were the inspiration for this piece, there were a couple of departures that I took. I look forward to your comments, and hope that you enjoy!
