October Intensive Shoemaking Course - the Finished Shoes


Welcome back good shoe folk and, as promised, here are the wonderful results from the October Intensive Shoemaking course. Congratulations again Bruno, Miya, Jodie, Travers, Bob and Matt. Great work and great fun to see the same shoe given such different sole treatments!

Preparing soles for finishing

After hours of rasping, glassing and sanding, the soles and edges were ready to be finished.

So if you fancy learning shoemaking with us, dowmload a booking form or get in touch. You will not regret it.

Until next time, happy shoemaking!
