Make a fantastic pair of hand-stitched fleece lined moccasins with the softest suede in your own size, with bespoke shoe designer Rose Choules in only one day.

Having been named the 2011 winner of the Footwear Friends Designer Award, designer Rose Choules successfully launched the Rose Choules Moccasin Atelier in Selfridges: an exclusive special for the Christmas season, with moccasins available both as custom orders and from a limited ready-to-wear selection.

Now snap a rare chance to make moccasins in Rose's style, exclusively at Prescott & Mackay. You will focus on the traditional moccasin construction, hand stitched techniques, using sewing machines and making your own beautiful fabric insoles

Course outline:

  • Understanding paper patterns based on your unique foot shape
  • Preparing leather parts from patterns
  • Including a full cotton fleece lining
  • Hand-stitching and machine stitching
  • Saddle stitching the toes
  • Force lasting to give the final shape

The finished moccasin will be for indoor use only, but the technique of how to attach an additional leather sole will be outlined during the class.

Before attending the class, you will choose a colour suede from Rose's range. You can choose from camel, navy, electric blue, red or burgundy suede.

Please bring a pair of sharp scissors with you. All the materials are included on the course and sourced in England. Of course, feel free to bring your own new or vintage fabric for socks to add personal touch! Students can also bring decorative elements to stitch if they wish to.
