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.
After returning from my amazing weekend it was time to jump back into work and start stitching my dads boots. My best friend also came to visit me that day and is staying for a whole week! I showed her around Florence and she visited all the touristic sights while I was working in class.
For the Tirolese stitch, a whole separate welt it sewn to the insole and upper of the shoe. This is not an easy process and you need to be exceptionally precise in order for the stitches to look the same size on the outside of the shoe.
On the Wednesday evening me and my friend went for a run up to Piazzale Michelangelo, watched the sunset with a beer, and then ran back after. It is honestly one of the most incredible views of Florence.
