The Home Straight

So here we are, the last day. As ever, it is going to be a bit of a mad dash to get everything finished, but I think we will be ok. The students have done very well and we have had some positive feedback. Fortunately, it has not been to hot these last 3 weeks, so we have not suffered with that. The only suffering has been the students hands which are afflicted with nicks,callouses and aches. My message is always the same - toughen up!

I will take pictures of the finished shoes and post them on Monday.

I must congratulate all of them on their dedication and hard work. It's a challenging course and they have all risen to it, as you will see. Images to follow...
