Up-to-date report from one of our students!
Course: Shoe Making
Program: One-Year Atelier Course
Period: Sept 5, 2016-April 25, 2017
She knew instantly that she would love to study further and learn more about shoes and decided to come to Firenze, Italy, the most famous city to learn more of leather art and shoes! She found Accademia Riaci and knew that the shoe making course that they had to offer was exactly was she was looking for.
Here she wishes to learn the highest level of shoe making techniques and to be able to follow her dream to become a designer with the knowledge of not only fashion, but also the art of shoe and handbag design.
During this week I finally finished my brothers shoes. It’s amazing how much longer the last few steps for rounding of a shoe can take, especially if you want it to look neat and professional. I am very impressed with the turnout though and so excited to give them to my brother.
I also carried on working on my dads shoe and finished a lot of work on the insole to prepare it for the Tirolese stitch.
The next day we travelled to Nice and then Antibes where we stayed for the weekend. It was incredible and we had such amazing weather too. We also went to Monaco for a day where we took the Hop on Hop off bus around and also walked along the docks and admired the beautiful yachts.
