First day starts at 10am, with an INTRO TO SHOEMAKING session. (IF YOU ALREADY TOOK A SEPARATE INTRO TO SHOEMAKING CLASS PLEASE LET US KNOW! YOU CAN EITHER COME TO CLASS, IN THE AFTERNOON FOR PATTERNMAKING, OR JOIN US TO REFRESH YOUR MEMORY!)

Details of class:

In the first class: You will learn about lasts, how to measure your feet, how to draw your designs. The afternoon of the first day, or, the second class, you will make patterns of your designs by taping up the last, drawing on the last and creating paper patterns. Then second day, you will cut your leathers from your pattern, prepare to sew, and start stitching, using a high-post sewing machine. Even a first-time-sewer will learn how to use the machines, do not worry! Third day you will finish stitching the uppers. Fourth day, you will start lasting your uppers. First the lining, then the uppers, in between you will put toe puffs and heel counters. Fifth day, you will sole your shoes. It can be a pre-made sole unit, or you can stack your own. If you are finished on the fifth day, great! You can start a new project on the 6th day! But, for those who will take your time, you will finesse your shoes on the sixth day, finishing the edges of your soles, or just final touches.


Materials included in this six day course are: Midsoles, Shanks, Toe Puffs, Heel counters. Upper and lining leathers available in the studio are also included for your pair, as well as variety of insole and outsole materials.

We will send you on a material shopping trip. Materials purchased on the trip will be the student's responsibility. Any materials that we don't have at the space, the student will have to purchase themselves.

Oh! And we shouldn't forget to tell you...

At the end of the workshop, you will receive a 1-day pass to use within 1 month after your course to come back again. So, if you are out-of-towner, stay one day extra longer, to come to the space on Sunday!

6-Day Intensive

6-Day Intensive Shoe Making Workshop
2,000.00

A 6-day intensive workshop making shoes, boots, or sneakers of your own design! This will be a cemented shoe construction class, and anyone: beginners to second-timers, to advanced students can take the course. For those who cannot take 6 days off work, we created a weeknight and weekend class going over the same program as well. We hope you can join us!

For 6-days straight classes:

First day starts at 10am, with an INTRO TO SHOEMAKING session. (IF YOU ALREADY TOOK A SEPARATE INTRO TO SHOEMAKING CLASS PLEASE LET US KNOW! YOU CAN EITHER COME TO CLASS, IN THE AFTERNOON FOR PATTERNMAKING, OR JOIN US TO REFRESH YOUR MEMORY!)

Details of class:

In the first class: You will learn about lasts, how to measure your feet, how to draw your designs. The afternoon of the first day, or, the second class, you will make patterns of your designs by taping up the last, drawing on the last and creating paper patterns. Then second day, you will cut your leathers from your pattern, prepare to sew, and start stitching, using a high-post sewing machine. Even a first-time-sewer will learn how to use the machines, do not worry! Third day you will finish stitching the uppers. Fourth day, you will start lasting your uppers. First the lining, then the uppers, in between you will put toe puffs and heel counters. Fifth day, you will sole your shoes. It can be a pre-made sole unit, or you can stack your own. If you are finished on the fifth day, great! You can start a new project on the 6th day! But, for those who will take your time, you will finesse your shoes on the sixth day, finishing the edges of your soles, or just final touches.


Materials included in this six day course are: Midsoles, Shanks, Toe Puffs, Heel counters. Upper and lining leathers available in the studio are also included for your pair, as well as variety of insole and outsole materials.

We will send you on a material shopping trip. Materials purchased on the trip will be the student's responsibility. Any materials that we don't have at the space, the student will have to purchase themselves.

Oh! And we shouldn't forget to tell you...

At the end of the workshop, you will receive a 1-day pass to use within 1 month after your course to come back again. So, if you are out-of-towner, stay one day extra longer, to come to the space on Sunday!

In this Bag Making course, students will choose their leather and hardware and learn how to construct a tote bag from start to finish.

The bag making course includes tuition and all the materials needed to make your bag. Leathers will be available to choose from on the day. No experience necessary. Designer and bag maker Lorna Nixon will teach this class.

**Class time may extend up to an additional hour if there are many enrollments, so please do not book bus or train tickets immediately after the scheduled end time of class. 

**Disclaimer: We used to offer a class that was integrated with backpack making but the time wasn’t sufficient for both types of classes in one, so we will only focus on tote bags for this class.

This class is a 2-hour theory class on footwear structure, resources for materials & how to measure your feet. Get inspired and design your shoes-. After this class, you will be motivated to create your designs!

If you register for the 6-day workshop, the intro class is included in the total price. (Please sign up only to the 6-day workshop if you intend on signing up for the 6-day)

For other footwear courses, it is highly recommended (not a requirement) to take this course as it covers a lot about basics of footwear and shoemaking lingo. It will give you a little time in between this class and your 3-day class you intend to take, to prepare supplies or order custom lasts ahead of time.

6-Day Intensive Shoemaking Workshop

to Jul 27

6-Day Intensive Shoemaking Workshop

6-Day Intensive Shoe Making Workshop
2,000.00

A 6-day intensive workshop making shoes, boots, or sneakers of your own design! This will be a cemented shoe construction class, and anyone: beginners to second-timers, to advanced students can take the course. For those who cannot take 6 days off work, we created a weeknight and weekend class going over the same program as well. We hope you can join us!

For 6-days straight classes:

First day starts at 10am, with an INTRO TO SHOEMAKING session. (IF YOU ALREADY TOOK A SEPARATE INTRO TO SHOEMAKING CLASS PLEASE LET US KNOW! YOU CAN EITHER COME TO CLASS, IN THE AFTERNOON FOR PATTERNMAKING, OR JOIN US TO REFRESH YOUR MEMORY!)

Details of class:

In the first class: You will learn about lasts, how to measure your feet, how to draw your designs. The afternoon of the first day, or, the second class, you will make patterns of your designs by taping up the last, drawing on the last and creating paper patterns. Then second day, you will cut your leathers from your pattern, prepare to sew, and start stitching, using a high-post sewing machine. Even a first-time-sewer will learn how to use the machines, do not worry! Third day you will finish stitching the uppers. Fourth day, you will start lasting your uppers. First the lining, then the uppers, in between you will put toe puffs and heel counters. Fifth day, you will sole your shoes. It can be a pre-made sole unit, or you can stack your own. If you are finished on the fifth day, great! You can start a new project on the 6th day! But, for those who will take your time, you will finesse your shoes on the sixth day, finishing the edges of your soles, or just final touches.


Materials included in this six day course are: Midsoles, Shanks, Toe Puffs, Heel counters. Upper and lining leathers available in the studio are also included for your pair, as well as variety of insole and outsole materials.

We will send you on a material shopping trip. Materials purchased on the trip will be the student's responsibility. Any materials that we don't have at the space, the student will have to purchase themselves.

Oh! And we shouldn't forget to tell you...

At the end of the workshop, you will receive a 1-day pass to use within 1 month after your course to come back again. So, if you are out-of-towner, stay one day extra longer, to come to the space on Sunday!


Come and make at BKSS!
