Mr. Walker is a formally trained master boot-and shoe-maker who has practiced his art for the past 19 years. Four were as an apprentice and five as a journeyman with Colonial Williamsburg.
Mr. Walker is an historian/educator and a true craftsman. He likes to tell the early American story by exploring the everyday experiences of everyday colonists to discover how their lives were shaped. He teaches a range of 18th century skills learned from working with museums and living history programs. The two classes he will be teaching at the 2019 Craft School will be based on specific 18th century artifacts.
