It was an excellent evening - informative and fun. Deborah was a fantastic teacher and host, passing on her here extensive shoe-knowledge . the conversation and banter flowed as we all gave new life to well-loved favorite pairs of shes.

Polishing our shoes is something we all notionally know how to do, but Deborah and James over the course of a couple of hours and accompanied by a good glass of Scotch show you that it's something to savour, to take delight in doing well, and start to understand that the very act of doing it builds a sense of content that strips away the underlying stress in life just as the polish removes dirt, wear, and tear from your shoes.

We learnt how to renovate, moisturise and feed leather shoes, followed by a complete mirror shine finish. Teachers Deborah & James are super friendly and relaxed, the atmosphere is all the more enhanced by the group and a jovial drink. The venue is great and easily accessible (Central London). It's a nice way to do something a little different, meeting new people and of course useful if you are interested in shoes and want to make sure you are looking after yours well. I highly recommend it!
