Description

In a relaxed and friendly setting enjoy a full day of fun, practical and informative learning making your own hand stitched leather sneakers. The most difficult part of this workshop is choosing your colours! You can choose to make a low or high rise style with lots of options to make your sneakers unique. All materials are included in the price, you can choose from a huge range of both vegetable and chrome tanned leather, including our selection of hair-on and printed hides. Using the new style of sneaker sole from 'Sneakerkit' you will learn how to work with leather, cutting and preparing, as well as hand stitching. The soles come in European sizes and are universal so fit both male and female, when you've placed your booking I will email for shoe size details to ensure the perfect fit. The insoles offer great arch support, whilst also having a microfibre top layer which is fundamental in moisture control. The soles are made from 60% natural rubber and avoid the use of glue - you can even undo the stitching and replace the sole or upper as required over the years. This is a full day workshop, 10am - 4/5pm. Please bring a packed lunch. Tea & coffee with homemade cake is provided at break times. Covid Update - The studio is light and airy with good natural ventilation, and the leather working bench is large enough to fit 6 students comfortably within the social distancing guidelines. Each student will have their own set of tools which will be sanitised before and after every workshop and further sanitising measures will be taken throughout. Handwashing and sanitiser facilities on entry. I want to make sure everyone feels comfortable with our Covid procedures, so if you have any queries please ask.
