Let's hope that their hands stay tough and don't suffer as much as they did during the course (see below).
The great thing is that so many people are being inspired creatively- those students who have come on the course who have decided to keep making, from Adam in the North of England....
|Adam's first pair on his own - looking great!|
to Nazim in Malaysia;
|Nazim's beautiful work - many pairs along - those heel edges look sharp|
|Reynier's handsewn work boots - love the seam stitching and rugged soles|
We'd love to hear from you if you are out there shoe making on your own...because you're not on your own...there are hundreds of people around the world who are following a passion for this highly skilled trade.
Until next week, happy shoe making!
