Tony Slinger Footwear gets set to host the annual Independent Shoemakers’ Conference in Harrogate next month.

Dedicated to the craft of bespoke shoemaking completely by hand, the 2019 event (details can be found here) will feature a masterclass on hand sewing by Jim McCormack, one of the most respected British shoemakers.

Other speakers will include BFA’s Jayne West who’ll focus on apprenticeships and host Tony Slinger who’ll be covering specialist orthopaedic insoles.

Tickets are almost sold out but BFA members can still secure the last few here.
