and there were shoes and pattens...
oh yes - there were!
I attended a shoemaking workshop last weekend.. - oh waily - my hands still hurt!
It was organised by dear Kaja and held by Stefan von der Heide
- a nice and exactly working medieval shoemaker - it was great!
I used to know that shoemaking is quite a difficult task and takes a lot of time - but I never thought about the amount of work a single parir of shoes will cause!!!
Well - pictures will follow tomorrow - I am just too tired to update correctly tonight.
Just - it's about of 25h hard work. one day for the "upper part" - one full day to sew on the sole!!! Just think about that!
Well - anyway: I got my nice shoes - with exactly the same look as on the picture! Just the leather of the pattens (nay - not sewn my myself - happy me - Stefan did them)
