Marika comes to CCS in the D

This week in the FAD department at CCS we had the pleasure of an intensive one-day with Marika Verploegh from Brooklyn NY. 

Marika presented several things:
  • A "down and dirty" canvass last wrapping method
  • A shrink wrap material for protecting your uppers during out-sole work
  • And edge finishing of a stack heel.

The students got to try out the canvass wrap on a h-heel boot last and spend some time finishing.

Marika is a Master Bespoke Maker and teaches at RISD and FIT.

She was very kind to spend the day with me in my shop talking and reviewing shoes and shoe making tools of which I now make and sell about 10 different products.
