Classes for kicks: Shoe School

From This Way Up, 12:15 pm on 7 April 2018

Almost 10 years ago Lou Clifton set out to learn how to make shoes by hand.

Her quest took her to Tasmania and to Japan, and after a lengthy apprenticeship she's now taught hundreds of people here in New Zealand to craft their own footwear.

We go to her Shoe School in Wellington to meet her and some of the people attending her 5-day shoemaking course.
