03. CLASSIC PUMP - lasting and finishing


This is a course of 2 practical workshops.

Within the first full day you learn how to assemble a classic pump. You will traditionally hand last, sand, attach an outsole and a heel.

The second day workshop is around 3 hours, where you remove the last (as the shoe has to take the shape of the last over night ) , secure the heel, insert the insole, finish and polish.

This is the last (very intensive) course out of 4 at the end of which you will have a ready-made shoe in your hands.

This workshop is the next step after a CLASSIC PUMP-PATTERNMAKING, CUTTING AND SEWING workshop where you make a pattern and have a finished stitched upper of a classic pump ready for lasting.

As usual, classes are small- no more than 2 students and are held in my studio in Montréal.
