Learn how to make bespoke shoes
PASSING ON GENERATIONS OF KNOW-HOW WITH FUTURE SHOEMAKERS WHO SHARE OUR VISION OF QUALITY

The bespoke shoemaking courses are designed for students who want to acquire the skills to turn their creative ideas into a final product. The program is composed of three stages to be completed over the course of a year. The first, introductory stage – called Apprentice – is for students who wish to acquire the basic skill-set and knowledge-base of hand-made shoemaking. This program lasts three months and it is linked with the Artigiano level, an additional three months of intensive study and work which enable students to have a complete shoemaking profile. This path must be completed before progressing to the Maestro level which can be undertaken only upon invitation of a master artisan.

The next session starts on January 20, 2020.

Method
STEFANO BEMER’S TRAINING COURSE IS PART OF SCHOLA, A NETWORK OF SCHOOLS FOR BESPOKE MAKERS.

Stefano Bemer’s training program aims to empower students to pursue their dream of hand-making shoes through the development of both skills and vision.

Students also engage with design and branding elements essential to developing a personal path in this industry, that will impact their future as makers, entrepreneurs or successful employees all over the world.

The courses are for individuals seeking to extend and develop their practice and skills at the heart of Made in Italy. This course of learning is driven by the student’s self-defined project.

The nature of the discipline is such that the course will rely on skilled practitioners as the key facilitators of learning.

Instructors are craftsmen who will have a common focus in that they will seek to develop the skills of students as proactive and reflective independent learners.

Some workshop activities will require students to work in groups, also from other courses, in scenarios involving multiple cultures and nationalities.

Our purpose is to build a dense network of contemporary makers who are able to change the world with their hands.

Our goal is to become the worldwide Hub for crafts training.
