About your host

I've been making sandals + shoes, and teaching sandal-making classes, since 2010 under the name 'Rachel Sees Snail Shoes'. I've taught groups of designers from NIKE and TEVA, and students from Oregon College of Arts + Crafts. My aim as an instructor is to provide a fun and accessible entry-point for the shoe-curious.
