This is a working session of the shoe making class- Once you have your pattern you made in the previous class, you can cut, skive, prepare your leather to sew, then sew, and last, and sole. There's many steps to the making. Please be prepared to schedule 4-6 sessions of this working class to finish your pair. Each class, is a maximum 4 people. You will have individualized instructions depending on where you are in the process of making shoes.
Highly recommended to take the first two classes. The Shoe Making zero zero one and the pattern making class.
As you know from the first few classes, please email email@example.com if you have any questions. The day of the class, I will meet you in front of the front door 5 minutes before the class. If you are early or later than that time, please call 646.338.8671 or 718.218.7111 to be buzzed in.
I hope to see you in class!
Please take the pattern class (Shoe Making Class002). I cannot accept students who do not have the material list or the pattern ready. Thanks for understanding.
Keiko learned shoe making through Emily Putterman who still teaches at many design schools, like Parsons/New School, Pratt, JCC. Emily used to teach at FIT when she took her courses. Emily is "The Shoe Making Teacher" of New York. (Now there are several more...) Keiko followed her around town with her classes. Emily taught in a way you can make shoes at home. So Keiko kept on making at home. Keiko then soon wanted a "shoe circle" like a knitting circle, and started offering shoe making workshops in Brooklyn. Since then, the circle of shoe makers has been growing. After working with and producing shoes in China, came to a realization of the first love of "making" shoes. Now Keiko works out of a studio in Brooklyn, handcrafts shoes in Brooklyn. Keep it local! kstar shoes website
