Up-to-date report from one of our students!
Course: Shoe Making
・The open-laced style shoe (called “Derby”) is almost completed
・This 2nd-year student is adding some stitches in the internal part of the shoe
・In order to sew together the welt and the outsole, students mark the welt surface (photo on the left)
・This student is preparing the groove to sew the outsole, but it’s important to pay attention because the hand gets easily clumsy (photo on the right)
・Here, outsole and welt have been sewn together (photo on the left)
・After having finished the sewing, we place the groove back to the original position (central photo)
・Student decided they preferred sewing style and use a soldering iron to create decorations (photo on the right)
・Even small parts, such as tassels, are made by hand (photo on the left)
・Since sewing together welt and outsole is a difficult procedure, students work together with the teacher (central photo)
・In case students want to attach a non-slip rubber on the outsole, this work has to be performed separately (photo on the right)
