ONLINE: Get Your Shine On: Fundamentals of Bootblacking
NOTE: This will be an online class via Zoom. Zoom information will be sent to all participants one hour before the event.
Interested in the wonderfully sexy and satisfying art that is bootblacking but not sure where the hell to begin? This introductory class gives you the information that you need to start getting your hands dirty. Emrys begins with the history of the shoe shine, from the 19th century to today, and covers everything that you need to know to pull that first fabulous shine, from how to build your basic kit to how to care for different types of leather, as well as a little of that sexy stuff she knows you're really interested in ;) So come out and learn the basics! You can even bring your own kit and follow along while Emrys demonstrates a classic high shine but all that's required is your enthusiasm! All skill levels welcome!
Emrys is a genderfluid Little masochist and princess. A lover of rough body play, rope, and shenanigans, but equally as likely to be founding napping in the sun and eating snacks. Emrys is a bootblack, spending most of her early days in the scene shining and presenting at events and venues across the country. Emrys believes in the power of human connection and the individual's ability to create meaningful life experiences. Emrys demonstrates her passion for joy advocacy through working as a clinical therapist, birth doula, case manager, and facilitating conversations on diversity issues in and out of the scene.
$15 - $35. Advance tickets required through Brown Paper Tickets.
This will be a live, online class offered through Zoom. To participate, you will need to download the free, basic version of the Zoom app before the class! This class will not be recorded and is not available for later viewing.
