The Story of Green Art Shoes

 

Staffer Lenny Wilson learned to make shoes in 1987 at a leather trades college in London, England. Shortly afterwards he began a career in public horticulture and was inspired to create a pair of shoes that incorporate parts of plants into their construction. Using traditional methods and materials, he unifies leather and leaves and other materials to craft unique, life size shoes. Join us for this distinctive visual presentation and story as Lenny shares his journey to illustrate what inspires him; highlighting plants and the plant selection process, how he integrates the materials, tools he employs as well as exhibition and workshop experiences.
