One to one shoe making for beginners

One to one shoe making training for beginners

Alongside our structured intensive and evening shoe making and pattern making courses, we also offer one-to-one tuition throughout the year, working alongside us in our workshop.

You start with a pair of lasts to use in your chosen size (the forms the shoes are made on); a pair of leather uppers (in a choice of 3 colours) and the “rough stuff” leather pieces that you need to construct your shoes. You are then guided through the 200+ steps involved in making your own pair of handsewn shoes.

The courses are physically and mentally demanding with some 96 hours of class time. The course fee is £3400 and includes a set of essential tools for you to keep (worth £110). At the end of the course, you walk away with a pair of shoes that you have made yourself and a set of comprehensive course notes so that you can keep on making!
