Workshop, Footwear Design, Future Footwear, 2017.

In a two-week workshop, students are introduced to the practice of shoemaking and the entire process involved: responding to a brief and particular demands, various techniques and skills, use of (alternative) materials, and finally, the production and design of footwear. This workshop has a great appeal to the students, who enjoy exploring the working environment of designing footwear. This year, students worked on the theme of Future Footwear and explored future foot visions through form and function. The Footwear workshop, normally given by Lillian Sanderson, was hosted by Hendrickje Schimmel (UK) and Rosanne Bergsma under Lillian’s supervision.
