June & August 2016 Shoes and patternmaking courses

I have included a field trip day as part of our shoemaking course this year, A day to go visit the suppliers of leather and tools and for the future shoemakers to meet those people, Ted Heslop of Moore-Pearsall Tannery is a man who knows his leather not to mention his humour,  I am lucky  to have these students taking my shoemaking course and listen to me for 3 weeks, They walk out after 3 weeks knowing how sharpen knives and skive leather, How to make waxed leather and above all the science and art of pattern cutting, lasting and welting, They would not be masters at these skills until years later if they wish to continue.
