Moving Along! Part 3: You CAN make shoes! - no longer offered

, designer/shoe maker @ kstar shoes

Now you are ready to last the upper you sewed at the part 2 class- (sewing class can take 2 classes) -- There will be a lunch break (if on weekend). You will be responsible to stitch on your own. (If you'd rather have myself, the teacher, sew it, we will negotiate ahead of time. I have a class to teach and cannot sew everyone's pieces together.) We have 6 sewing machines in the studio. If you have your own machine you can bring, you are more than welcomed to do so.

Please contact [email protected] if you have any questions. As you know by now, please come 5 minutes before the class to meet me in front of the front door. If you are early or late, please call 646.338.8671 or 718.218.7111 to be buzzed in. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Keiko H

designer/shoe maker @ kstar shoes

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, handcraft and manufacture shoes in Brooklyn. Keep it local! kstar shoes website
