One day shoe making course in the historic market town of Wirksworth in Derbyshire.
The course is led by Judi Cook an award winning shoe designer, who has worked for internationally renowned footwear companies in the UK and abroad. She has also lectured at Leicester Polytechnic (now De Montfort University).
The course is for ladies with no prior knowledge of shoe making but who love crafting, and are handy with a pair of scissors and glue. It is a very simplified method; full instruction is given to small classes of up to 3 people. At the end of the day you will have your own pair of lightweight, leather-lined, fabric mules, with a thin EVA sole suitable for indoors or light outdoor wear. Judi wears them as "posh" slippers.
What's included in the price?
All materials and tools are supplied for the course. There are a wide selection of fabrics and leathers to choose from; but if you have a fabric of your own bring it along to see if it is suitable. Wooden lasts are supplied - I will need to know the size you require when you are booking your course.
During the day there will be mid-morning and afternoon breaks with free tea or coffee and cake. There will be a break of 45 mins for lunch, there are several delicious cafes nearby. Parking can be found on some roads free of charge, or in pay and display car parks.
If the course is already full it may be possible to organise an alternative date, or if 2 - 3 friends want to do a course together, please phone the course tutor.
