Create a pair of miracle sneakers by hand in just 1 day, no machines or glue involved!
Making a pair of shoes is not only a transformative experience, it is a skill that has almost disappeared in NZ. Shoe School is changing this by giving you the skills to make your own shoes. Our Sneaker workshop is our most accessible of all, there is no specialised equipment involved and you'll be wearing a pair of shoes - of your own creation - in just one day!
The leather used in the workshops are end-of-line leathers sourced from a shoemaking factory in Dunedin. The rubber soles are end-of-line products sourced from a local designer, with some smaller sole sizes missing in the range that have been sourced from China.
Lou from Shoe School is offering 3x one day workshops at the Gym at the Arts Centre Ōtautahi Christchurch as part of the festival:
All materials provided.
This is a workshop suited for adults only, no children please. Bookings are essential and non-refundable.
Huge thanks to the Arts Centre & Creative New Zealand for supporting the festival and this workshop.
