Why not learn to make your own shoes? On this one-day shoe making course for beginners you will learn one of the most important elements of shoe making, hand lasting.

Hand lasting is the stage of pulling the leather shoe upper over the last (the forms that the shoes are made on) and securing it in place first with nails and then contact cement. It is one of the most important, because a hand lasted shoe has a beautiful shape, exactly following the contours of the last.

At the end of the day, your shoes will be sent off to our specialist cobbler to have a leather sole and heel attached before being carefully boxed up and delivered back to you, ready to be worn! If you would like to keep your shoes looking at their best we also offer shoetrees made especially to fit them.

When you book, simply choose your size, style, colour, detailing and whether or not you would like shoe trees. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to email us and we’ll be happy to help.
