Bespoke Shoes Unlaced – a shoemaker's blog

Thursday, 9 May 2013

 Ladies and gentlemen, half way through week one of the New York shoemaking course and we have something that looks like shoes!!!

After a flying start the pace has settled down and we are where we should be at this point. Toe puffs and toes to be lasted.

(Chelsea's draw in the football yesterday hopefully won't put Nima off his stride).

Let the welting begin!

New York Course - day 1

New York got off to a flying start with a fun group of five students from Montreal, Texas, San  Francisco, Vancouver and NY.

After a few false starts with too small aprons, broken knives and wounded hands... it's been a great first day.

(This was the less than auspicious start to the day...coining the term "it's been Kevined"!)
