Quick Kicks: 2.5 Day Sneaker Class!

This class will quickly teach you some of the basic techniques of sneaker making. This is an accelerated class! (Literally half the time of the intensive)

To make this possible there will be minimal sewing and you will be using a prepared Master Pattern. 

Choices you will have: LO, MID or HI top sneaker.  (See photo example for MID height!) You will be able to customize your sneaker via material choices and simple design details: Topline, Laces, eyelets, pull tabs, topstitching...

We highly recommend upgrading to the 5-day sneaker making class for elaborate designs apart from the basic designs we will work with. As we have no time, lasts will not be modified, and everyone will work with Serena lasts.

THIS IS GOING TO BE AWESOME!

Day 1 (Half day): Patternmaking, Cutting Leathers

Students will be able to choose leathers from our leather library. Materials are included. If you intend on going shopping to purchase your own leathers, that will be on your time and $.

Day 2 (Full day) : Stitch, Start Lasting

Day 3 (Full day) : Finish Lasting, Cupsole & Speedy Stitching, 

Walk out with a pair of custom sneakers in a weekend and still have time to go out! 

Make sure to book ahead to secure all the materials in your size.  All tools and supplies are included.

Chukka Boot Making Class

This course is taught by Aaron Osborn, co-founder of the brand Osborn Shoes, and in general, a fun guy :)

In this 2-day course (or a 4 evening course), you will learn how to make a pair of boots using Osborn shoe last, patterns, and welted Vibram rubber sole. You will leave class with a finished pair of boots for you to wear proudly around - you made them!

This class is for both women and men (size 6 women - size 12 men).

Upon purchase/registration, we will contact you prior to class to finalize some info (like your shoe size). Workshops are about 6-7 hours in length each day. And we will have a break for lunch in between. 

Students trace the patterns, cut the uppers, sew them by hand, and assemble the uppers. Lasting will be assisted by Aaron, and the Vibram soles are attached with non-toxic glue (low-voc). Small class sizes to ensure a fun and productive time.

*If you have your own leather color you'd like to use - you are allowed to bring that to class to use instead of what we have in stock.

3D MODEL YOUR HIGH HEELS

3D Model your heels
680.00

In this two-day course, instructor Curtis Schmitt will take students through the 3d modeling process to create the base heel. Once that has been modeled, each student can then divert off into executing their design ideas utilizing additive and/or subtractive techniques being careful to avoid changing the necessary interfaces for the component to actually work. At the end of class, we will also go through how to send the file to the 3D printers like Shapeways, and learn about terminology and requirements from the printer's website.

Requirement:

Each student will need to bring their own laptop (Mac) with their own copy of Rhino installed (trials are good for up to 30 days so if you are going to be using a trial version, we suggest that they don't install it until within at most two weeks of the class).

Instructor will be demonstrating on a 27" iMac. 

 

 

Instructor: Curtis Schmitt has been obsessed with all things 3d from a very young age, through architecture school, and to this day in his professional life. After working as the principal 3d modeling and 3d rendering architect for several firms, he decided to focus exclusively on 3d modeling, 3d rendering, 3d animation and 3d printing when he started and managed (for 6+ years) the CGI and 3d Printing departments at a prominent Manhattan photo studio and post-production facility. He resigned that position in 2015 to freelance instead, allowing him more opportunities to travel and the freedom to work with a select group of his favorite clients. His 3d printing design work has been commissioned by several high-end brands including Chanel, and his pieces have been featured and sold at the Cooper Hewitt Museum Shop, among others.

You will take Intro#001 on a weeknight, and a patternmaking class on a weeknight or weekend. Then you come to the weekend classes. On the pull-down menu, you will see a WEEKNIGHT & WEEKEND course. Please check all the dates and we hope you can make them to all.

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. Then second day to the sixth-day, you will sew your uppers, last, sole, and make shoes of your own design. 

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. 

Depending on the class consensus, we will either go on, or 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.
