"IT'S NOT ABOUT THE TOOLS BUT THE HANDS, EYES, HEART AND LONGING IN THE SOUL TO CREATE BEAUTIFUL ART"
- Chris weylandts
Art and Sole Academy is the first shoemaking school in Canada to offer classes and consulting for those interested in learning the art of shoemaking.
The Academy was founded by Canadian designer and shoemaker Jennifer Allison in 2014 with the goal in mind to make shoemaking accessible to a general audience.
The techniques taught at Art and Sole have been designed to substitute industrial machinery with user friendly and affordable tools to provide students with the opportunity to continue creating on their own at home.
Whether you are looking for a new hobby, creative outlet or thinking of stepping into the industry we have a wide selection of workshops and services suited to all skill levels!
