Up-to-date report from one of our students!
Course: Shoe Making
Program: Atelier Course
Period: Sep. 4, 2017 – Apr. 27, 2018
After working in Taiwanese footwear industry for three and a half years, she came to Firenze to study shoes making course, the city which is famous for leather art and shoes.
Although she already has basic aesthetics and sketching technique background from university (B.A.), yet she hopes to extend her shoe-making skills here in Riaci. She believes designer can deliver their thoughts through their works, hoping to keep motivate people with her designs.
When the day coming closer to Christmas, there are lots of Christmas market held in the city. I participated in one which was near Arno river, which is called－Creative Factory.
One of the reasons why I love Florence city is that here has lots of lots of art and craft activity. it is really enjoyable that every times when I join this kind of activities, I could meet and get to know more people, who filled with passion with arts and designs.
After making pattern and making test during last week, I finally have my decision with satisfaction. The toe part still needed to adjust a bit but, this is how it looks from now. It will be a derby boot in Goodyear construction. Stay tuned…
When the pattern was done, I could start cutting the upper. In this time, I also choose the caramel brown for this pair. Another challenge for using bright color leather, should pay more attention on it.
Yushih had done her long boot test and now discussing details with Prof. Angelo. It was really funny to see how Angelo reacted when he looking at Yushih’s long boots. The reason probably because, not much student tried to make long boots like this. Well done, Yushih! You can make it~
Many people start to make boots because the winter is coming. Our dear Caterina was making a pair of chukka boot for her brother. Picture shot when she making the thread for stitching, it looks like she made a very very long length.
This was second test for her long boots. In order to make a confortable boots, she spent a lot of times on it. It looks like a shoe for elves! We said it jokingly.
