Shoemaking Intensive! Come make your own shoes!
A 5-day intensive workshop making shoes or boots of your own design! This will be a cemented shoe construction class, and is aimed for beginners. First day starts at 10:30am, with an INTRO TO SHOEMAKING session. Other four days will start at 10am. You will learn about lasts, how to measure your feet, how to draw your designs. The afternoon of the first day, you will make patterns of your designs. Then second day to the fifth day, you will sew your uppers, last, sole, and make simple shoes and sandals of your own design. Materials included in this five day course are: Midsoles, Shanks, Toe Puffs, Heel counters. Upper and lining leathers available in the studio are also included for your pair, as well as variety of insole and outsole materials. We take you on a material shopping trip. Materials purchased on the trip will be the student's responsibility. Any materials that we don't have at the space, the student will have to purchase themselves. Oh! And we shouldn't forget to tell you... At the end of the workshop, you will receive a 1-day pass to use within 1 month after your course to come back again. Come and make at BKSS!
