Sneakersschool is a place where you will learn to make handmade sneakers under the guidance of master shoemaker Roel van Hoff. Because the course is held in a very small group, everybody will be getting the right support. Also because of the small number of participants, the students  can learn from each other, help eachother out and share creative ideas.

In this course of shoemaking, you will learn how to deconstruct sneakers and then create a whole new pair of sneakers. With the techniques that you will learn in this course, including the course book you will receive, you will have all the information and knowledge you need to continue making handmade sneakers yourself.

*Courses are given in English and Dutch
