We are finally preparing to start a basic shoemaking course in our Singapore workshop! There are still so many details to be worked out, but what we would love to teach includes:
- Basic knowledge of shoe components
- Basic knowledge of specialised hand tools
- Preparation of insoles, outsoles and uppers
- Lasting, cemented construction and hand stacking heel blocks
- Final polishing
Of course, there are a lot more things than what is listed. We are planning to hold the course over 2 weeks, 3 hours every evening for weekdays and 2 full days over the weekends. All tools and materials will be provided, all you need to bring are your hands and a love for the gentle craft of shoemaking.
As we have limited capacity, do drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org to register your interest. We aim to let every trainee bring home a pair of shoes they made themselves!
