The Shoe Project

The Textiles Workshop have spent the last several months creating ‘The Shoe Project’. The Bradford members visited shoe shops to gain inspiration for their shoes, and then created six designs.

Everyone brought shoes to upcycle at the workshop, and then chose a design to bring to life.

We also created shoe-boxes to help showcase our shoes as part of an exhibition.

We enjoyed using our creativity and textile skills to design the shoes and then create them.

Some of the skills we used include:

  • Sewing
  • Cutting and sticking
  • Painting
  • Using fabric in unusual ways
  • Working as a team to make the scrapbook
  • Using our imagination
  • Staying focused
