Welcome back shoe fans! It's been a frantic week, London Craft Week set up, numerous (exciting) meetings, James off to New York and our three-day Clicking & Closing Bootcamp getting under way in new York, under Marika Verploegh Chasse's watchful eye!
Here's how the students got on, on day one. They spend the first day working on their knife skills - we all know the difference a sharp knife can make - and skiving techniques...
|Marci skiving edges|
|Bryan sharpening his blade|
|Punches ready for seam decoration detailing|
|Always handy, a sharp pricking awl|
|Working on seam edges|
and finally stitching sample seams.
Until next week, with more news from London Craft Week and the New York Intensive Shoemaking Course starting on Monday, happy shoemaking!
