Program: Summer Course

My Sixth Week
After many drawings of lasts from different angles, I started drawing shoes. My theme was ghillie shoes, using loops for the lacing. After drawing a few styles, i worked on shading and colouring the drawings.
Along with the design class, I spent as much time as possible working on my shoes in the shoemaking workshop. The welts were sewn, the insole was filled and levelled, leather soles were attached and hand-stitched, and finally, the heels were built and the soles and heels were shaped and polished. The shoes were finished with no time to spare, late on Friday afternoon.
The shoes fit and feel very comfortable!
Thank you to all the people and students at Academia Riaci! My time at the school was very rewarding, and I will drop by to visit the next time I am in Florence.
