Shoe Design Course 2011

Shoe Design (Introduction)

Monday 22nd – Friday 26th August, 10am – 4pm

We all love shoes – but where do all those fabulous styles come from?

This introductory course takes you through the fascinating history of footwear from the bejewelled pumps of Elizabeth I to the bejewelled pumps of Jimmy Choo.

You will look at how shoes are made and learn how to design and illustrate your own ideas. The course ends with a practical design exercise following the stages taken by professional designers to produce a range of shoes. This will include illustrations and 3D mock-ups. Lead by Chris Hill who has been designing shoes for over twenty years, some of her students are now household names – Jimmy Choo, Emma Hope and Patrick Cox.

Cost: £195

Spaces are limited therefore advance booking is recommended. Call 020 7407 8664 or click here to book online
