Greetings from Shoe Making Course 1

1.Hello everyone, this is your course reporter from shoe making class. After a long relaxing summer break, I am pleased to announce that we’re all back to school for another fantastic year!

2.As being a continuous student, I am glad to see that this year the class is composed of students from all over the world with 9 nationalities.

3.New students are learning the basic techniques of shoe making starting from the most basic and simplest model: dècolletè.

4.After patterning, here comes the patter trial through which we verify the patterns to see if they work properly.

5.The shoemaking master is demonstrating how to operate the stitching machine, which generally takes a while to get use to its crazy speed as being a beginner.

6.Folding the edge along the topline to make sure the overall look is nice and clean, next week they are going to learn the lasting process which is also a very fundamental technique.
