I own Shoe School and run shoemaking workshops for beginners. It's my aim to make learning shoemaking in New Zealand simple, accesible and fun.

I met Master shoemaker Takano Keitaro and his assistant Chiemi Chiba when I travelled to Tokyo in 2015 to attend an internship. I'm passionate about breathing life and creativity into New Zealand's shoemaking practice. 

Shoe School is located in Dunedin, New Zealand. Dunedin is a compact university city with Scottish roots. It is renowned for fashion and design and a creative arts scene. The exhibition and viewing will be an associacted Event of iD Fashion Week, so we're expecting a large and captive audience!
