With over 15 years shoemaking experience we will teach you the fundamental shoemaking skills and techniques to hand craft your own pairs of sneakers.
We'll spend the 5 days handmaking the shoe of your choice — from Js to Dunks. Select from our wide range of leathers to design the shoe you've always wanted.
This course has been designed for beginners and intermediates, you'll leave with your handmade pair and the skills and knowledge to continue your shoemaking journey.
This course is perfect for custom artists, fashion designers, sneaker heads looking to get deeper into the culture or anyone looking to get into shoemaking as a timeless craft.

We cater for all skillsets. We will have plenty of time for practice and get you to point where you will feel confident with the process.
We have a wide range of materials for you to pick from. You're welcome to source your own leathers and bring them with you. With footwear you can use a lot of different types of materials but some work better than others, for leather please ensure it isn’t too thin or soft/large. It needs to be between 1mm-1.4mm. Cow or horse hides works best. If you want to use fabric or synthetic material it will need a heavier cotton driller backer ironed on. If in doubt bring it with you and we'll take a look.
We'll provide everything you'll need on the day. Have a think about your design — on enrolling we'll be in touch to see what you had in mind. We provide all leather, but if you'd like to something you've found yourself you're welcome to.
Shoemaking is a craft and requires skill and patience, all we ask is you bring a positive attitude to learning and we'll help you with the rest.
