Delegates now registering for basic shoemaking course

The event will explain main footwear materials, product types and manufacturing operations.

SATRA is organising a two-day course entitled 'Basic shoemaking step-by-step', on 29th and 30th March 2017 in Kettering, UK. This event will explore the main footwear materials, product types and manufacturing operations in a simplified way, and will be presented by SATRA's own specialist staff.

The programme is intended to give a broad appreciation of the production sector and has been designed for both manufacturers and non-shoemaking personnel. These will typically include shoemakers, leather tanners, material suppliers and buyers, as well as sales and administrative staff. Using actual shoemaking materials, examples of product types, printed handouts and videos, the tutors will explain and discuss the major aspects. A visit to a manufacturing unit is also included.

Topics covered in the course will include fitting, upper and lining materials, soling materials, constructions, adhesion, consumer complaints and performance standards.
