  • Course description
    BA Footwear Design


    Shoe design and technical making skills are developed throughout the programme, emphasising the crucial relationship between design and manufacture and the needs of the modern footwear industry.

    Design research, drawing and illustration skills and an ability to present and communicate ideas and concepts to a high professional standard are developed throughout Year One. This includes a series of shoe design projects focusing on a comprehensive range of footwear styles. Technical shoemaking skills are taught to give an understanding of the manufacturing techniques involved in modern shoemaking and students make a range of prototype shoes of their own.

    Throughout the programme there are regular visits to tanneries and exhibitions, and work placements within the footwear industry can be undertaken during the vacation periods. These have included Alexander McQueen and Jimmy Choo.
