Shoe and Workshop

The Shoe Quarter organizes inspiring workshops on a variety of themes. During such a workshop you gain experience in one afternoon with various material applications or shoe making techniques under the guidance of our experienced museum teachers. The workshops are suitable for everyone older than 15 years, so you do not need to have experience with leather or shoe making. The overview below lists the workshops that are currently scheduled and can be registered for. It is also possible to use the workshops as part of children's parties, company outings, bachelor parties, etc., in combination with a visit to the museum and some goodies in the museum café.
