Join me on in my Bristol studio for a day of making and craft yourself your own pair of bespoke leather sneakers.  This is a fun yet challenging day of learning new skills.  The class size is limited to a maximum of 4 people to ensure you get plenty of one to one attention! 

YOU WILL LEARN

You will first cut out the leather uppers from a pattern before making stitching holes and lacing holes with specialist leather tools which are provided.  You will then have the option to sew on additional details and fix metal eyelets on the lacing holes.  Finally, you will hand sew the leather uppers to the rubber soles.  Build yourself a pair of new sneakers!  This workshop requires a degree of strength in the hands and may not be suitable for people with reduced mobility or strength in their hands (cutting/sewing leather can be hard work!).
