We have to limit the customisation to aesthetics only due to time constrains - all footwear made on our courses will be built around our standard last shape, we cannot in the time frame reasonably accommodate pattern changes for extenuating foot shapes. - sorry for the inconvenience.

We provide all the leather
All the tools
A written diagram handout for future reference

No Lunch - but there are plenty of lovely options within a walking distance.
We have so often been on courses where you learn techniques using expensive tools and machinery only to find back at home and wanting to develop our skills we were at a total loss to continue;
So we have decided to teach the course using a selection of inexpensive hand tools which with only a little investment means that you could carry on developing your skills if so desired.
