"I did the one day shoe making workshop - I was absolutely thrilled with the results and proudly wear them regularly. Very patient tuition -I am pretty cack-handed on any sewing machine let alone a leather sewing one! I would heartily recommend!
Once the team at Green Shoes have your pattern, you can then also order handmade shoes from them at a later date too."
"What an amazing day! Great fun with a team of friendly, professional and knowledgeable people. We were amazed at what we were able to achieve in a day. Everyone back home has been amazed by the beautiful shoes and boots we made. Thank you so much!"
"I had a wonderful time at the one-day course at Green Shoes. I love my shoes, they are beautiful and comfortable. I will cherish them always and remember the fun day of bonding with a interesting and creative group of people.
I was expecting and hoping to receive more information on shoe-making in general, but it was more of an employee-for-a-day experience. I was told what to do and received all the help I needed, but I didn't learn more general information about materials and glues and techniques. There was a lot to do for all of us to get through the work in one day!
Also, I expected to leave with my shoes that day, but the final sole and finishing was to be done by the shop, and I had to pick them up on Monday. Luckily I could alter my plans and return on my way back to London before flying back to the US on Tuesday."
"This was my fourth course in the space of about 10 years and I still wear the shoes I made on my first workshop! I would thoroughly recommend this course because not only do you learn a lot about shoe construction, but you also get to take home a pair that YOU made and are custom-fit for your own foot size and shape. These shoes will last you a lifetime and will become your 'goto' item for every occasion. Excellent quality materials, lovely atmosphere and a beautiful end product. 5 stars!"
