Taking a hands-on approach to teaching arts and crafts, London Textiles Workshop nimbly assembles a colourful patchwork of workshops. A three-hour session teaches students how to design a pair of shoes from a selection of fabrics and colours. Participants may decide on a pair of Mary Janes or vintage-style booties for the little ones.

Groupon Asks

Groupon finds out what goes on behind the seams at the London Textiles Studios and discovers that textiles can be for everyone.

Who are the studios' workshops aimed at?
There is a wide and varied range of workshops that are aimed at both children and adults. Some of the studios' workshops are specifically tailored for schools, while there are other classes designed for adults with learning difficulties.

What is on offer besides learning how to make children's shoes?
As well as shoe making, London Textiles Studios offers workshops in dressmaking, screen printing, crochet, wet felting and Devore scarf making. All workshops leave customers with a finished product to take home.

Is there anything else that shoe making workshop students need to know?
Although all necessary equipment and some embellishments are provided, students are welcome to purchase other fabrics for extra customisation. Workshops are led by shoe maker Magdalena Konon whose shop, Walk Unique, specialises in baby moccasins.

I had a lovely time but I think some people might need a bit more structured 'teaching'.
