It's Saturday evening and my week teaching the Carreducker Intensive Shoemaking course in Williamsburg, Brooklyn is over. How time flies!
Deborah has arrived and is ready to take over on Monday. I fly home tomorrow morning - back to reality!
The students have got to the point where they are ready to put their soles on, so good progress.
On days 4, 5 and 6, we did the following
Lasted the toe puffs.
Welted the shoes (sorry, I deleted the photos) . And then put in the shanks.
Skived the shanks.
Happy students at the end of week 1. Lets hope they are as happy at the end of week 2 when their shoes are finished! I'm sure they will be.
So watch this space.
Until the next time, happy shoemaking!
