1 Day Introduction to Shoemaking CoursEs 2017


Participants on our One Day Course get to make a classic, all leather, cement lasted,  indoor mule/slipper type shoe.  

Course Outline:

1. Introduction and confirmation of participant shoe sizes

2. Overview of cement lasted construction, leathers, patterns and components and 'clicking' (the hand cutting of upper and lining pieces)

3. Preparation and assembly of uppers

4. Insole attachment and lasting

5. Sole attachment and finishing the shoe

The course starts at 9.15am and ends at c5.00pm – the end time is flexible depending on progress on the day.

We keep class sizes VERY small - maximum of 3 places so you get lots of individual tutor time - booking early is therefore advised.

"I thoroughly enjoyed the course" "Knowledgeable and friendly tutor"  "Wonderful attention to detail"  "Really delighted with the shoes I made"  "Such a magical and productive day"
