This is an introductory program for beginners (360 - divided between specific modules and supervised project completion in the workshop). Students should be motivated and focused on working in the field of hand-made shoemaking and be prepared to dedicate study and work time over and above the classroom times indicated in the course modules. Students must reach a sufficient level in terms of their knowledge and quality of technique in order to progress to the next level of the program. The Apprentice program level is composed of six phases of curriculum. Lessons will be held in the afternoon (2.00 pm to 5 pm) by a Master, while mornings (10.30 am to 1.30 pm) will be committed to practice (working practicum).
