This profile and pattern making workshop is part of a series of shoemaking workshops. Take all the workshops and learn how to make shoes from start to finish, or just the one(s) that interest you.
This course is an introduction to shoe design. An essential part of making shoes is making the upper. Patterns for the upper are based on the last itself. In this workshop, you will learn how to make profiles from lasts and create pattern templates from the profiles. You will learn the basics of drawing footwear designs and how to turn those designs into patterns. We will draw and cut the patterns from paper. Cutting and sewing leather (known in the trade as clicking and closing) is covered in a different workshop.
