Have you ever dreamed about making your own customized shoes?
In PIHKA’s shoe making course you will get the chance to make your own custom-made shoes.During the course you will be crafting the upper of the shoe. The course requires no prior experience in leather crafting or shoe making. We will be assisting and guiding you through all the phases of the work.
In the course we will be using leathers from PIHKA’s wares as materials; you may choose from our wide variety of different coloured shoe leathers. Rubber will be used as the sole material.
You may choose the style of your shoes from the following PIHKA exclusive shoe designs: Tuohi, Kiela, Valma, Kauka, Lari, Sysi or Auri.
The material prices are dependent on the model of the shoe:
– Kauka 70 €
– Lari, Auri and Sysi 60 €
– Tuohi, Kiela and Valma 40 €
Please note that because the adhesive used in the shoes takes several days to dry, your shoes will be lasted and finished on the week following the course, after which we will send the finished shoes to you by mail.
The maximum number of attendants for the course is six persons. The registration fee will be deducted from the final price of the course. We kindly ask you to bring cash or debit/credit card with you when you attend the course, in order to pay the rest of the total course fee at the start of the course.
Please note that your registration for participation is binding, and the registration fee will be refunded only in case of acute illness of the course attendant; in such cases we kindly request that you provide a medical certificate.
The price of the course includes lunch, as well as packaging and postage for the finished shoes.
