OUR 
STUDENTS

Matt Soczywko
I've never sewn, I've never 'clicked' (cut) leather, I've never lasted. The teaching was so hands-on, so detailed and supportive, I was able to emerge with a great pair of shoes from scratch.
Damon Ma
Couldn’t have done this without the chaps at LSS. They were knowledgeable, experienced and most importantly been very approachable throughout.⁠ I would recommend it to anyone interested in making their own sneakers.⁠
Danny Hillman
Made these from scratch. I had never cut leather or used a sewing machine before this so I’m extremely happy with my first reconstruction. Can’t Incredible teaching and hospitality by the LSS team. I would highly recommend it to anyone that wants to get involved in this craft. What a week!
