Shoemaking in New Zealand

@ VOL 38 ON NOV 08, 2018

Lou Clifton is a shoemaker and teacher based in Wellington. Lou started her shoemaking journey 10 years ago, at a time when it wasn't possible to learn in New Zealand. Deciding she had nothing to lose, her quest to learn the endangered craft has taken her to Australia and then to Japan, where she was invited to intern with a Master Shoemaker. After recognising she wasn't the only one in New Zealand with a passion to make shoes, Lou launched Shoe School in 2015 in Dunedin and has recently relocated her business to Wellington. She's lost count - but she thinks she's helped students materialise over 300 pairs of handmade shoes since Shoe School's inception. Lou is here to share her story - how a combination of determination and some solid day dreaming has lead her to create what she considers to be just about the best job in the world.
