Take a course in shoe-making in Italy
The shoe-making courses are held in the historic center of Florence, where art and artisan workshops still operate. In the interest of promoting this inheritance, in collaboration with Florentine artists we offer shoe-making courses which allow participants to refine or learn artistic techniques by working in direct contact with these professionals in their workshops.
Studiainitalia can provide individual or group courses, and the course program can be personalized according to participants needs and interests.
A general program (48 hours lesson) covers:
- The design of shoes
- The quality of the materials
- Anatomy of the foot
- Knowledge of the utensils
- Use of the cutting knife
- The shape and the heel
- Base models for the manual method
- Stitching, assembly and finishing phases
Lessons are delivered in Italian but it is not required to know or speak Italian since these are practical courses and teachers/artists are used to work with foreign students. It is possible to combine these courses with a course of Italian language.
Students will learn the craft of making shoes with artists in their workshops in Italy, watch to learn more!
