Nothing says more about you than your shoes… they’re one of the most important style decisions you have to make.
Carréducker London shoes are designed at our workshop here in Bloomsbury, London; made by small, specialist artisanal manufacturers around the country; and imbued with the qualities that we invest in our bespoke footwear – style, comfort and great materials. So you’re in safe hands.
The Carréducker Shoe Making School offers the rare opportunity, for complete beginners and those with some shoe making experience, to learn the specialist skills of English shoe making – aspects of footwear design; aspects of footwear pattern cutting; techniques to click (cut out) and close (stitch) footwear uppers; and hand sewn English welted shoe making – taught in a creative environment by master craftsmen and industry experts.
Since we founded the Shoe Making School in 2006, we have met hundreds of wonderful people from across the globe and realised that the courses aren’t just about making a pair of shoes. Learning new skills and challenging yourself can lead to all sorts of changes. We’re very proud that, over the years, our courses have given students new-found confidence; started new careers; fanned an enthusiasm for making; given an appreciation for craftsmanship; and even been the catalyst to go off to do something new.
