HAND PAINTED SLIPPER MAKING COURSE
We are running 2 courses one in Bristol on the 25th & 26th November and one in collaboration with Lunar_HQ in London on the 20th & 21st January.
These are 2 day beginners weekend courses in which you will create your own unique hand painted leather slippers suitable for indoor and outdoor wear.
These painted house slippers will transition into perfect summer slip on's for the warmer months.
The course will run from 10am - 5pm both Saturday & Sunday with an hour lunch break.
We provide all the tools and materials & we have plenty of Leather paints which can be mixed to create any colour you desire. - unfortunately no metallics.
~There are very limited spaces with only 5 places per course~
We encourage you to research and develop some ideas about the surface design you would like to paint on to your slippers before arriving, bringing imagery and reference material which will help you create a pair of amazing slippers which you will cherish for ever.

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.
