|28th Sept 2015 - 4th pair of replica Angus MacPhee grass shoes.|

|Angus Macphee weaver of grass - original grass shoes.|
Angus made more than one pair of shoes. This pair, are sadly falling apart. It did mean however, that I could get a closer look at the construction method. Angus made a grass sock, then stitched a couple of layers of grass soles to the base - making it a platform shoe.
"...an exhibition of Outsider Craft, the first of its kind to be originated and toured in the UK.." Click here for more info and a list of the very extraordinary exhibitors.
