Shoe Makeover Workshops:
Come along to a creative one-day shoe makeover workshop and learn how to transform a pair of plain old shoes into something truly stunning and totally unique! On these fun one-day courses, I will guide you step by step through the process of pattern making, covering and embellishing your shoes with a choice of eye-catching fabrics and trims. At the end of the day you will walk away in your very own fabulous customised footwear!
