    Learn how to customize your sneakers in this workshop with artist and pro-skater, Sebo Walker. Sebo will share the different approaches he uses when customizing sneakers, like creating a simple pattern and repeating it, either across the entire shoe or as an accent on desired sections like a swoosh or toe cap. After sharing ideas, thoughts, and processes, we will dive in together. By the end of the workshop, you’ll have a sweet pair of customized kicks and your own signature pattern. Supplies needed: new or old pair of shoes; a good Sharpie or paint pen(s). If you don’t have/want to paint shoes feel free to bring a backpack, skateboard, or other item to customize instead.
