Shoe Workshop

description:
Ed the Tinker is having a shoe-making workshop Sunday, 17 Feb 2008 12:00-5:00. Cost of the workshop is $30 for each pair of shoes you make. This covers the cost for all materials and supplies. Required tools will be provided. (Although if you happen to have your own, bring them).

Location: 8604 Slate Hill Circle, Frederick, MD 21704. (See Directions below)

This is the shoe we will plan to make: http://members.ozemail.com.au/~chrisandpeter/shoe/construction.html

Please print the pattern out, and enlarge it to fit your foot before you come. It's very hard to do that here, and will really slow you down.

Folks who'd like to come and visit but not make shoes are also welcome. Please send reservations to merritt@tatrc.org.

Food and soft drinks will be provided, but if you'd like to bring something for the group to share, please feel free.

The workshop will be at 8604 Slate Hill Circle, Frederick MD 21704

DIRECTIONS:
FROM FREDERICK/HAGERSTOWN:
Take I-70 E, exit 56. Turn left onto 144. You'll pass the National Guard Armory, cross over the Monocacy River. Next street on the right is Bartonsville Road. Turn right onto Bartonsville Road. Go about the length of a football field. You'll see the River Oaks neighborhood on the right. Turn right. Take the second left (Slate Hill Place). This is a very short street that ends in two cul-de-sacs. One on the left, and one on the right. We're the second house on the left in the cul-de-sac on the left. Feel free to park on the grass in the cul-de-sac.

FROM GAITHERSBURG/DC:
Directions from I-270 can get a little complex. There is a new interchange onto I-70 E, coming down I-270. This interchange is so new, it might not be reflected on Mapquest yet. Anyway, follow I-270 all the way to Frederick, where it ends. You will pass a mall on the right. Just past the mall, I-270 splits. The far right lane exits out to I-70 E. Then follow the directions from above to exit 56, etc.

FROM BALTIMORE:
Take I-70 W. Get off at exit 59 onto 144. Curve to the right and merge onto 144. Follow this through the light (Spring Ridge), then up the hill. Note that 144 is split by a median. It merges at the top of the hill. Once it merges, the next street at on the left is Bartonsville Road. Turn left. Go about the length of a football field. You'll see the River Oaks neighborhood on the right. Turn right. Take the second left (Slate Hill Place). This is a very short street that ends in two cul-de-sacs. One on the left, and one on the right. We're the second house on the left in the cul-de-sac on the left. Feel free to park on the grass in the cul-de-sac. Location:
