It's always such a fun experience for teachers here at BKSS. We plowed through the intensive 5-day workshop with 6 students this past week. Started with a 12 people introduction class lead by Keiko where we measured our feet, and learned about lasts.
It's a challenge to find the lasts you're comfortable working with for this very first pair of shoes you are going to design, when you now have all the knowledge that lasts MUST fit you to make a perfect shoe for you, and the toe shape, and heel height all depends on the last... We overcame some challenges, modified designs. Everyone had different characteristics, and their designs were unique and all the students' work came out great!
Next class: November 9, 2015 week
