Intensive Shoemaking Course Jan 13 - Day 7

We have roared into week 2 with a flurry of thread making and stitching the soles.

We spent much of Saturday making leather shanks and filling the forepart with cork. Leaving Monday for the serious business of getting the soles on.

Fortunately, most of the students agreed that it is easier than welting.

Here are some images of them at work.





Today will see them finish the soles and start building their heels.

Until the next time, happy shoemaking
