We try to share quotes that inspire us and remind us of what's important - but usually they're by people we don't know! We received this feedback from someone who was on one of our workshops and we loved it so much we had to share it. Thank you so much for joining us for a workshop, and for sending us this feedback. We appreciate it so much! And yes, Ruhela is an incredible teacher.
We've also got one of our classic shoemaking workshops coming up at #thecreateplace this month - catch us there on Saturday 11th August from 11am. Featuring treats from @the_gallerycafe - which means the profits from our rental of the space and from lunch will go back to the awesome @StMargaretsLDN. And our profits go back to running our employability and training schemes. And - you get to make your own gorgeous reclaimed leather shoes. Win-win-win. See you there.
🎉 We're holding our first-ever crossover sandal making workshop! If you've been admiring this style, now's your chance to design and make your own. You can choose from our stock of reclaimed leather - and mix and match colours if you like! We'll be at The Create Place on Wednesday 15th August showing you how to make your own perfect summertime sandals. See you there!
You can't buy, achieve or date serenity and peace of mind... it's an inside job.
...and this is what they look like in the making! A pair of patterns, two tassels on each shoe, some waxed linen thread, eco-friendly jute soles, scissors, pins, needles and pliers. All we need - and everything you need - to make our peep-toe slides. You can buy bespoke pairs in our shop right now, but we want to know - would you like us to offer a peep-toe tassel slide workshop? Or a DIY kit?
Going away anywhere this summer? Or planning a staycation in this heatwave? Our peep-toe tassel slides are perfect for any sunny day - a little bit fancy, but a lot comfy!
“How you climb a mountain is more important than reaching the top.”
Here's another group of happy shoemakers! Did you know we run our shoemaking workshops as private parties? You can book us for birthday parties, hen dos, or teambuilding workshops at your company. Just send us a message and we'll put together the perfect day 😘
With this lovely weather, we've been having some amazing shoemaking workshops at @spitz_cityfarm. When it's this sunny, we run our workshops in the table in the kitchen garden, surrounded by herbs - and cats! We've got workshops every Saturday for the rest of July and August, so join us if you'd like to make a pair 📍✂
