Craft Pods 2014-15 tour


FCA&C are delighted to be featuring shoes by renowned bespoke shoemakers Deborah Carré and James Ducker (carréducker) in the Craft Pods for their 2014-15 tour.  Based in London partly at their workshop in Cockpit Arts and partly at Gieves & Hawkes, Deborah and James have been handmaking beautiful footwear for several decades.  As well as the making, they also see themselves as guardians of an important tradition and also teach and lecture about shoemaking in the hope of encouraging the craft to continue.

Find out more about carréducker and see examples of their skill in the Craft Pods.  They’ll be touring Fife between the autumn of 2014 and summer of 2015:
