Apprenticeship course – December UPDATED

Sorry for the short notice, but it just turned out, that I can take 2 apprentices for 3 weeks in December, in Savannah, GA. Hands-on, old fashioned apprenticeship course. Please contact me if you are interested.

Due the many mails I received, let me answer some questions here:

– the course is flexible. I am available from 20th of November

– the course program is also flexible. We will make upper pattern constructions, and at least 2 different shoe constructions and a lot of practices

– I don’t provide lodging, but there are B&B close by (one in the same street 4 houses away)

– Hours: everyday from 9 to 4.

And..  the weather is great here in Savannah in the winter!

  4. Hi Marcel, I inquired about the course last week, and wanted to follow up and share with you my situation/plan. As badly that I wanted to enroll, I wasn’t completely prepared. However I had been preparing and will continue to prepare to attend in 2014 S/S. During the meantime I will purchase some of the tools, materials ect. so that upon my return i can get started. Thank you
