“I took the 3 day course around September last year and I was very pleased I did. To be able to construct a pair of heels from start to finish with my own bare hands was a very satisfying experience. I would highly recommend this course to anyone who is interested in footwear as a career or anyone who simply loves shoes as it’s definitely worth the money.” – Destiny *****
