HOW THE EXPERIENCE WILL BE

In my studio, surrounded by old tools and the fragrances of materials, you can find out how a carved object comes from a sketch on the wood. I will show you the main steps, starting from a short description about the different types of wood essences, then the tool grinding and the sketch on the wood. You will then try to plane with your own hands and I will finally held a demonstration of intaglio carving. If you already are passionate about that kind of works, you can bring your artifacts with you so that we can have some experimentation with them.
Participants will receive a gadget as a record of the experience.

We will start with the sketch made on the mould, the realization of the paper pattern, the leather cutting on the upper shoe and finally the assembly of the shoe on the mould. I will also show you the different kind of leather that I use for my shoes and of course the different working techniques that confer comfort and quality to a high end handicraft shoe.
