Puckertoe Moccasin Workshop

May 13 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Puckertoe moccasins made from a yellowish-beige leather.Traditional Native American clothing varied widely from tribe to tribe, but one nearly universal element was the moccasin. The word moccasin comes from the Algonquian word meaning shoe or footwear. This sturdy slipper-shaped type of shoe was sewn from tanned animal hides. Join Darlene Kascak, Schaghticoke, for a fun and informative workshop making your very own classic puckertoe-style moccasin. Learn the same techniques used by moccasin makers for hundreds of years.

Space is limited; please call to register by May 10.

$75; $65 IAIS Member.
