Private Tuition


Get on the shoe making fast track. We offer private shoemaking tuition for those of you who would rather one-on-one learning or would like to top up on your skills.

Private tuition schedules are specified for each student individually, however it is important to note that all students will require a minimum of 2 days to complete 1 x pair of shoes.

Private tuition is suitable for students who have some experience in footwear and want to brush up on a particular aspect, and is also suitable for total beginners who wish to learn in a one-on-one teaching environment.
