Get on the shoe making fast track. We offer private shoemaking tuition for those of you who; would rather one-on-one learning, would like to top up on your skills or have a shoe design that might not fall into one of our other courses. Private tuition is suitable for total beginners or students who have some shoemaking experience and want to brush up on a particular aspect.
Private tuition is also great for those of us that want to address certain fitting issues. Whether it be wide feet, bunions or high arches you would be surprised at how straightforward it is to accommodate for these when making shoes of your own.
Private tuition schedules are tailored to each student individually, but as a guide you would require a minimum of 2 days to complete 1 x pair of shoes.
Please scroll down to the ‘course breakdown’ section to view some examples of what can be taught in these sessions.
Private tuition is available on weekdays only. You can choose to block your dates together or they can be spread out over a period of time that suits you.
If you are feeling a little lost with your options or to request some dates that suit you please get in touch.
