Like the class and content! I do wish that the explanation was more forthcoming... I would have signed up for the whole day if I knew more about the intro topics

Keiko is an excellent instructor, she has knowledge and experience to help you start your journey on shoemaking path. This first class is intended to give you an idea of specific terminology, tool to measure the size and overall glance on the shoe from inside out. The atmosphere was very friendly and we all had a chance to see how this craft is built- from the "software" part as knowledge and experience to the "hardware " part as all machines, tools and materials needed. Excellent start for me!

This class was a great intro course into the world of shoe making. I did feel like a had a better grasp of what it takes to make shoes. Highly recommend.

This is actually a maximum one-hour class and not much of stuff to learn at all. Huge waste of time and money. Totally disappointed.
