Make Your Own Sneakers Course


Email us to arrange 4 days that suit your schedule – evenings, days or weekends.

On this 4-day shoe making course you will make a pair of leather trainers / sneakers using specialist Storm welting construction on a standard sized trainer last.


Through demonstration and guidance we will guide you through

We will lace and sock them before arranging for you to collect them / to ship them to you.
