Have you ever thought you’d be able to make your own leather sneakers from scratch in just one day? And walk out of the class wearing them? Well, this is exactly what I'll teach you to do. You’ll choose your leather, cut it out to your size, then assemble it by hand stitching it to your soles. Just add shoelaces and voila, your own custom-made pair of sneakers! Ok, you'll need a bit of time (and a minimum of effort) but that's pretty much all that’s required for this class. I'll provide the soles, leather, patterns, tools, and of course the fuel (aka tea/coffee + biscuits). Ladies and men soles available, as well as a wide selection of colours. Can be made for oneself, as a gift or even take the class as a couple or friend/family member experience.
I’m a sewing teacher and blogger and a former contestant on the BBC Great British Sewing Bee competition. I’ve been sewing for 10 years and I’m passionate about helping people live a more sustainable life through making their own clothes and footwear. I was trained by the creator of Sneaker Kit (whose method and supplies we'll be using) in the Netherlands and since 2019, I’ve been leading Make Your Own Sneaker classes in London as well. With more than 4 years of experience teaching beginners to get making, I can't wait to share my passion with you too!
All equipment and materials will be provided - soles, leather, needle and thread, punch holes, scissors and cutters, eyelets…
Creativity is contagious, so we will be making our sneakers in a wonderful creative co-maker space in Brentford, SW London - The Maker Station. This is a beautiful, bright space where you can immerse yourself in making your shoes while drawing inspiration from other crafts and activities.
