Weekend Flat Shoe Making Course


Flat shoes are a year round wardrobe staple. In this two day beginners shoemaking course you will learn how to make a pair of flats from start to finish. Various styles, colours and embellishments available.

This course is perfect for flat shoe enthusiasts and those who are only available on the weekend. It’s a very popular class to give as a gift or to bring along a friend to.
