Coming soon: Make Your Own Trainers / Sneakers


On this 4-day shoe making course you will make a pair of leather trainers / sneakers using specialist saddle stitch and Norwegian welted construction on a standard UK size.

You will start with a comprehensive set of course notes and the shoe uppers, sneaker lasts, tools and materials that you need. Then we will guide you through hand lasting, stitching the foxing (the strip that sits around the trainer / sneaker) and then sewing it to your shoe using a Norwegian welt stitch. We will then send off your shoes to have a lightweight, flexible micro sole attached before returning them to you socked, laced and ready to go. 

Please email us to discuss dates….the course can be taken over 4 days, two weekends, as a series of evening classes or one day a week whichever is most convenient.

The course fee is £995
