At LSS we teach you the in's-and-out's of shoemaking by handmaking the classics. Based in Hackney, our goal is to equip our students with the skills, resources and community to go forward to build their own brands, reconstructions and customs.
We teach traditional shoemaking techniques and take no shortcuts. You'll learn the difference in techniques between a hand made vs mass-manufactured — with your strong shoemaking foundation you will be able to go on and make more pairs.
Our goal is to making shoemaking more accessible. We believe when you bring the means of production closer to the culture interesting and exciting opportunities open up.
