SHOE WORKSHOP MODULES
Participation in the Basic Module is a requirement for making your own pair of shoes. You will gain an insight into the shoe manufacturing process, and we shall discuss your ideas together. At the end of the day, you will know whether or not your “dream shoe” is technically feasible and how many workshop modules you will need to complete it. This depends on the complexity of your shoe design. There are no professional prerequisites other than a motivation for manual activities and for deepening what you have learnt between the modules.
