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.
The Chelsea boots I was making had come to a high peak! It’s all because I chose the wood nailing method, a kind of very traditional way, even the technique for hand-stitching is a little bit different. Let’s keep watching…
When measurement was decided, then we could cut off the extra leather. Insight picture, you could see Prof. Angelo was showing me how to cut the groove for stitching later on.
When everything was ready, we could start hand-stitching! The benefit of this old welted method is that it could change outsole easily.
At Wednesday night, someone played the guitar and the beautiful singing blow into my ears where I was in piazza della repubblica. In that almost zero Celsius Florence night, I listed to the music, and suddenly, the snow was coming…
I felt so lucky to see this big snow just happened during my stay in Florence! Some local people told me, the last time that Florence was snowing might be around 8 years ago. Let’s why I said I was lucky (smiling)
I am super happy that I found a very good barber shop in Florence center. As well as that, finally I don’t need to be worried about my terrible, not fashionable hair style anymore!
