I loved this class. It was a great insite to the ins and outs of show making. I loved doing all of the measurements and discoving new things about my feel, i.e. sizing. I can’t wait to take the next level.

This class was a ton of fun & packs a lot in for one day. Lots of choices for materials which are included in the cost of the class - although everyone in class was working from the same pattern, the finished shoes were all unique. The instructor Bonnie was wonderful at explaining the process & very helpful when anyone got stuck. Brooklyn Shoe Space is really cool, with regular members coming in to work while the class was going on - you could tell what a wonderful collaborative space it is, with everyone around enthusiastic about the work and sharing ideas & tips with each other. I have a feeling this won't be my last pair of shoes or my last visit to the space. This is a FULL day of work (and our class ran late as our instructor ensured that everyone left with a finished project) so come prepared for a marathon of making!

I've been obsessed with Brooklyn Shoe Space since I discovered them while googling for shoemaking courses. After looking at their website and instagram I realized that this was the BEST option for me and it was the BEST INVESTMENT I've ever made in my designers education in my entire life. So happy and can not wait to return on November 28th, I will not miss the sneaker making class!

This is a wonderful space for any level of shoemaking or leather crafting. Take a class, come for open studio or combine both! I took a shoemaking course and continued studying independently through a month long membership. Everyone here is full of talent and super friendly. Thanks for the great experience bkss

This place is awesome! Everyone here is so friendly and helpful. I went here for a week long bootmaking class and left feeling truly inspired (and with an amazing pair of knee high suede boots)! They really let you create whatever you want here, there are no restrictions, which is awesome. The process is a bit daunting at first but Kate was so helpful and was an amazing teacher.
