Summer Courses with Carreducker



Welcome back good shoe folk and here's a beautiful landscape to celebrate  midsummer! Well not quite, it being England and four seasons in one day!

As usual we've a busy summer of besp0ke shoemaking ahead of us and of summer courses, classes and workshops.

HANDSEWN SHOE MAKING - 12 days - £2100 

8 - 20 July

Be quick, our summer handsewn course kicks off on 8 July! We'll guide you through making a pair of handsewn shoes from leather pack, last and uppers to finished shoes. Book before Monday and receive a £50 discount. 


Join leather craftswoman Frankey Pinnock to learn the skilled craft of saddle stitch as you make a leather key fob or card case.



FOOTWEAR PATTERN MAKING - 5 DAYS - £649

29 July - 2 August


I think pattern making is one of the most important parts of shoe design so we're delighted to have Fiona Campbell back again this summer to teach our five-day pattern cutting course. 

We've had to juggle dates a little, so the course now runs from the end of July into August. We're delighted to offer it at £649. We need a minimum of 4 students to run it, so why not give your design capabilities a boost?!





Join glove designer and maker Riina O' for a five day course to learn to make yourself a beautiful pair of hand stitched, leather gloves. 





Hope you can join us. Until next week happy midsummer and happy shoemaking!
