Have you ever wondered what it’s like to make a pair of boots? Enjoy a two-week learning vacation in historic Albuquerque, New Mexico and make your own boots with master bootmaker Deana McGuffin.
Working with Deana, you will experience the complete boot making process from start to finish. And when you’re done you’ll not only have a brand new pair of boots, but the pride of knowing you made them.
$3,800 covers two weeks of private instruction and use of all professional tools. Most materials are included but some materials such as exotic leathers are extra. Price does not include travel or housing expenses.
In 2006, one of Deana’s former students won second place at the Silver Dollar City Boot Contest in Branson, MO, for her boots made in Deana’s class.
Are you interested in becoming a professional bootmaker? Deana's two-week intensive boot making course guides you through the entire process from taking measurements to the final finish. Deana takes only one student at a time, so you get her full attention to your learning experience. The course fee is $3800.00. The fee includes materials for one pair of boots, some knives, patterns and templates and helpful resources. Follow-up instruction and consultation available.
