There is no substitute for learning from master craftsmen.

Learning handsewn shoemaking, like any new skill, needs practice but also a strong foundation of good techniques on which to build.

Face-to-face classes are inspiring, allowing you to see at first hand how to hold and use the specialist shoe making hand tools, to draw on their wealth of experience and to practise the skills used by James and Deborah at their London studio, to make their acclaimed bespoke handsewn shoes and leather goods.

Online tutorials and courses share the same principles; thoughtfully designed to help you to learn the foundations, refine your techniques and put in that all-important practice; available to download and keep; supported by personal Zoom tutorials as-and-when needed.

Choose from short courses, evening classes or longer term training tailored to suit your availability.
