Boot School

At Schwarz’s boot making school the student will spend all of their time in a working  Boot Shop.

Customers come and go throughout the day.  The student learns what it takes to operate a quality shop with real service to real people, unlike a controlled school environment with the shades pulled and the door locked, our students receive a complete education on boot making, and an understanding of the business.

The school is offered four or five times a year:

  • Two week course;  six days a week, twelve hours a day.
  • One half payment is due at the time of scheduling and the other half when the school begins.
  • Please call or e-mail with any questions
  • No experience with tools or machinery required.
  • All  lodging, meals and transportation are up to the student.

You can expect to walk away with a pair of boots you made, the lasts and patterns they were made with, a list of suppliers for all the needs of a boot maker, all the boot making information you can retain, and a manual for everything you can’t.  Besides all this, you will have satisfaction and pride of  accomplishment that is beyond words.

Course Schedule for 2016:

      • No Classes are scheduled for 2016 at this time.  Thank you

Boot making is a dying art and we are happy to pass on this secret
