What you'll do

I'll introduce you to my shoemaking studio, located right in the heart of Sydney within The Strand Arcade. We'll walk through and I'll share my passion for the traditional craftsmanship and the tools, machines, materials, & designs it takes to make a high quality product. As a highlight, we'll have an opportunity to really get a feel for the leather and get hands on by making your own personal leather bracelet to take home with you! After the experience, for those feeling adventurous & inspired please enjoy a 10% discount on all my shoes and accessories.

Andrew

My journey into shoemaking started when I was working as a freelance photographer in London where I did a shoot for a shoemaker. After that I returned home to Sydney & began the craft of hand making shoes - it's been over 27 years. Great shoes are a transformative experience. The material for me always informs the design, characteristic leather sustainably made for the discerning few.
