Learn how to make your own unique leather sneakers in this exciting leather workshop with Studio ND. Choose your leather from a selection of colours, cut your pattern pieces, stitch your uppers together and attach your rubber soles to finish.

Personalise with a choice of different eyelets, laces and stitching and emboss your name or initials on the leather to give it that really personal touch.

During this workshop you will learn how to

  • Use templates

  • Cut leather

  • Burnish edges

  • Use specialist glue

  • Use a rotary hole punch

  • Fit eyelets

  • Saddle stitch

Choose from super low rise, low rise, high top or super high top style.

What is included

  • Rubber sneaker soles

  • Vegetable tanned leather

  • Eyelets

  • Laces

  • Needle and thread

  • Leather topped insoles

  • Access to all the tools required for the process

This is a beginner class and is available to everyone. There are some tricky stages to the process but if you’ve made sandals with me before, you’ll find this a breeze!

Evening class - Three x 3 hour evening sessions

You will need to attend all 3 sessions in order to complete your sneakers.

  • Thursday 28th November 6pm - 9pm

  • Thursday 5th December 6pm - 9pm

  • Thursday 12th December 6pm - 9pm

Full day workshop - Saturday 18th January 2020, 10am - 5pm

Please take a look at the sizing chart above before you select your shoe size. The soles come up slightly large so if you are a standard size 5 for example, the 37.5/4.5-5 should fit you best.

Tea, coffee and snacks provided but please bring your own lunch. There are plenty of cafes and takeaways within walking distance if you would prefer to pick something up.

This technique can be easily repeated at home and soles will be available to buy from Studio ND should you wish to make another pair. Your next pair of sneakers don’t have to be made from leather, you can try all sorts of materials like cork, felt, reinforced fabric, rubber..whatever inspires you!

If you would like to reserve a space for a £30 deposit and pay in installments, please select deposit below and send me an email at info@studiond.com specifying which class you would like to attend. We can then organise a payment plan that works for you.
