Philippe simply loves his craft and is not shy to say so, or to show his gratitude to those who taught it to him. To honour this he wants to share and transmit his knowledge and passion by inviting everyone to visit, discover and experiment in his workshop.
He also feels committed to try to keep his profession alive and is therefore keen to teach it to those who wish to learn. And he does so, in person, by opening his workshop to young (and not so young) apprentices to whom he is delighted to dedicate his time as a shoemaker, designer and teacher. ‘Made to measure’ training sessions are available for beginner to experienced shoemakers. Please contact us for further details.
«Dans un cadre magnifique et une ambiance agréable j'ai appris les bases de la botterie et réalisé une paire de soulier sur-mesure de mes propres mains.»
Mr Emmanuel D.
« Nothing can be saved without transmission: in order to keep this valuable heritage alive and for it’s long term survival, it is essential that the craft and skills of the shoemaker are constantly passed on from master to student ».
