Jouw stoute Schoenen offers you the possibility to experience the craft of shoemaking. During this nine day course you will work on your own design. 

Before you can start the course you will have to make an appointment to have your foot measured and to choose the last you will work on. The height of the heel and the shape of the nose have to be decided.

When the lasts arrive you can start. 


Any body can make shoes. Even if you have never used a sewing machine or cut leather, operated a sanding machine or even designed a shoe before.

The professional teacher team of Jouw stoute schoenen will coach you every step. of the way  

At the end of the nine day course you will have learned many new skills. And you will walk away on your own pair of shoes. 


Shoemaking is an amazing craft. Making your own design makes it even more special.

No need to make pairs of shoes you are never going to wear. Make the pair of shoes you designed yourself. 

There are some things that will help you make a killer pair, patience, courage, working very precisely and joy.
