advanced pattern making

advanced pattern making

This course is for more advanced pattern makers and gives participants the opportunity to develop more articulated constructions and linings for the oxford, derby and pump. The first day starts with a demonstration about the basic construction and lining for pumps, to continue with more complicated patterns during the week.

Participants will be able to make a prototype for each model including lasting. Individual attention is given, so that there is the opportunity to make lots of creative choices on the style of the shoe, trims and embellishments.  
Basic pattern making knowledge is required to attend this course.

The workshop is taught by Eva Klabalova, expert shoemaker and a SLEM Master alumni.
