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, I start from second hand stitching for Norwegian construction, which was stitching upper with middle-sole. The picture shows the process of hole-measuring by Prof. Angelo.
A big step for me – customized a shoe stamp for myself! From now, every shoe I make could see this mark, how exciting! Photo shot when I heating up my stamp, ready for stamping.
On 19th to 20th of April was our graduation exhibition. I’m glad that in this moment, we can get together sharing our works. Meanwhile, I really think it’s a great opportunity to let people know Riaci have great work with high quality and students! Photo shot with my handmade shoes during exhibition! One Blake Oxford shoe and one Goodyear Derby shoe.
Behind the scenes, we wore our shoes with excitement. I think, to become a shoe maker, will not only feel fulfilling that someone wears their works, but also feel happy for wearing their own handmade shoes.
Hello, let’s take a group photo! – photograph Emi said. I think I will always remember this moment. I’m glad to meet these crazy friends, who are brave to chase their dreams.
