I was interested in making my own sandals, I came across this course and was instantly interested. My problem was that I do not drive and was coming from London by train. Lucia picked me up from the station and took me back at the end of the day.
Lucia also supplied a delicious two course meal and refreshments.
I had a great day and have a great pair of sandals to show for it.
I treated one of my friends for her birthday to one of Lucia’s sandal making sessions. We had a fabulous time making our gorgeous sandals. Lucia made us welcome, her coaching and guidance made the whole experience most enjoyable and in some ways easy, if that’s at all possible.
I am hoping to attend another course with Lucia very soon.
Highly recommended, you’re in for a real treat.
Myself and my mum attended a sandal making workshop last year. Lucia was very informative and guided us through the process with ease. There was a lovely selection of colours and leathers to choose from, the process was easy enough also for a complete novice to easily complete. A lovely lunch was provided and Lucia was the perfect host!
Response from Lucia Girardi:Thank you Mary. Very pleased you both enjoyed it and I adore the style and colour combination you both chose.
Had a great time! Very informative & hands on in a friendly environment. I was able to create a bespoke pair of sandals to my taste, which I have happily taken home. Thank you!
Response from Lucia Girardi:Thank you. Your sandals are gorgeous. You picked up the techniques very quickly. So happy you are pleased with them. I hope you enjoy wearing them.
Not being a crafty person, I was nervous. Didn't need to worry, the lady tutor is lovely. The process is simply explained, there's no rushing but you do make your sandals in a day. And they are totally exclusive. It's your design, your colour choices, made to the shape of your feet & fitted to your exact size (& width). There's no sewing - just cutting, gluing & sticking. A very nice lunch is included in the price. I really enjoyed myself; so much so that I want another pair!
Response from Lucia Girardi:Sandie I know it’s not easy however you did an amazing job, you should be extremely proud of yourself. I love the double soled look. They fit you perfectly and a great colour combination too. Look forward to seeing you make your next pair.
