Then, on the same last, the students drew a slipper design (which is like the court shoe but with a tab on the vamp) and made a forme.
After lunch saw them moving on to the Oxford. After a discussion of the style and its history, they selected a new last and taped it up. From here they drew the design lines onto the last.
The results were very impressive and I think the students went away having learnt a lot. Fiona reported that they had worked really hard and maintained good levels of concentration. Time flies when you are having fun.
