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’s class, we focused on making insole and lasting Francesina. At the same time, we received our shoe last this week! Now, we could actually make our own shoe. I’m very looking forward to it.
On Monday, we start learning how to make insole, this time is quite different because we now using leather as insole, it is more complicated and take times. Assistance teaching us how to make leather sole as well as the method of letting leather fit the last.
After sticking back counter, it’s time to start lasting. I accidently cut too much lining on the back, I had no choice but put my nail on upper, haha. It won’t make a mark, I put it on the corner.
