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.
This week, we completed our Decollete and started a new page – Francesina. Francesina is normally known as Oxford in English, which is one of the classic pattern in man shoes. Since I worked in men shoe company in my hometown, I always felt excited if I could make my own. I’m really pleased that we now began.
On Monday, we keep working on our Decollete. Last week we found appropriate heel for our last, now we start from making outsole to fit shoe shape.
This pattern is really different from Decollete because this one has many small pieces, this photo shows the stander pattern before cutting into small pieces.
Happy lovely class with cupcake, which was baked from my classmate- joe. See the decoration on top, so amazing.This is weekly reports, see you next week!
