About Carreducker

We are master cordwainers who make bespoke shoes that combine the traditions of the heritage craft of handsewn shoe making with a modern aesthetic, colour and detail. We design each pair of bespoke shoes to suit each customer's personal taste, style and of course, fit.
We founded and run the London handsewn shoe making school, opening up opportunities for novice enthusiasts to learn this heritage craft on evening classes, our famous 12-day intensive course and one-day introductory hand lasting classes at our workshop in London's iconic Oxo Tower Wharf building. We are proud to include Maud van den Broecke (Horace Batten Bootmakers), Seiji McCarthy (Japan), Ann Marika-Verploeghchasse (Stiefelwerks NY), Jesse Moore (NY), Louis Smith, Oliver Stoppard, Tom Murphy, William Laborde, Sabina Lima, George's Shoe Repairs, and Fadairo Oluwamuyiwa (John Lobb apprentice) amongst our alumni.

Leathercraft Classes

Leather is a wonderful material to work with and at the same time, it is good to know that a waste material is being transformed into something beautiful, durable and useful. We work with veg tanned leather from Tuscany which is made using strict sustainability and environmental controls.

It’s a waste material that we’re passionate about using constructively. Our leather craft classes are not only our way to share this enthusiasm but are carefully designed so that you will use professional techniques and the best materials to make a leather accessory to be proud of.

We run leathercraft classes on Saturday afternoons, but you can also get a group together for a special celebration or arrange to come with the family for an afternoon of making. Classes start from £120 to make a sunglasses, pencil, card or secateurs case.
