London Intensive Shoemaking Course Day 1 Week 1

We're off and running...day one of our August shoemaking marathon and as happened in New York, our students have roared ahead on day 1 skiving, blocking insoles, making knife sheaths and starting threads!


We have the Scandinavian table... Denmark and Norway...


vs the UK, US and Australia...


and there's everything to play for as we approach the more complex, challenging and tiring sections of week one - preparing the insoles, lasting and welting.


Enthusiasm and energy levels are high and long may that continue.





We've seen some neatly prepared insoles...


blocked and drying ready to prepare tomorrow....


 and everyone is enjoying the coolness of the air conditioner....



...(which helpfully transforms into a heater for winter!)



That's it until tomorrow when the hard work starts!
