A wise man once said 'you are either in your bed or in your shoes so it pays to invest in both'.. and so in-comes our brand new workshop! And no, before you ask, we are not teaching you how to make a bed (haha) we are actually teaching you how to make your own leather trainers. So take a walk on your crafty wild side and stitch together a stunning pair of trainers to keep your feet looking fashionable this year.
In the workshop you will get a choice of styles to choose from; will you go for low top or high top trainer? Or go super high or super low? Yes there is something for everyone!
During this workshop you will learn how to cut your leather trainer pieces, construct and stitch the uppers (the top bit of the shoe), make professional holes with a leather punch, and lastly how to bring all these elements together to make a pair of pretty cool functional shoes - we promise. Depending on your ability of working with leather, you may have to finish the other shoe at home with your needle and instruction sheet, if this happens don't worry because you will be well on your way to finishing the pair in the class.
JUST LET US KNOW IF YOU WOULD LIKE VEGAN FRIENDLY FAUX LEATHER INSTEAD WHEN BOOKING.
Beginners - you don't need any experience of working with leather at all.
Do I Need to Bring Anything:
No you don't, we will give you everything you need to walk away with a pair of handmade leather trainers.
This will include your sole, leather needles, cord and the leather to make your trainers.
Feel free to bring some snacks to eat during the class
All our workshops include unlimited tea, coffee and we always have plenty of cake on offer at every workshop and vegan friendly biscuits. If you require gluten free sweet treats please let us know!
