Two-Day Beginners Shoemaking, London, UK

Categories:

This two-day shoemaking course is aimed at newcomers to shoemaking, looking to learn the basics. You will study the fundamental techniques of shoemaking allowing you to complete a pair of ladies mules by the end of the session. No better way to dip your toe in and find out if shoemaking is right for you.

Shoemaking patterns are provided and the emphasis is on the making rather than design. You will leave with a much better understanding of what shoemaking entails.

The course price includes specialist shoe components and the use of tools. Shoe lasts are provided for use in the class. You will work with a square-toe, 2 inch heel last.

Things you need to bring with you

  • Material that you wish to use for your shoe uppers, either a lightweight leather skin such as pig, calf or goat, or ½ meter of fabric which should not be too stiff or too transparent.

  • Sharp fabric scissors
  • Notebook and pen
  • Any trimmings you wish to use i.e. ribbon or feathers and lining material if you have a specific lining in mind
