A shoe making course in Sydney
I'd heard that Birdsall Leather had shoe classes as well as there other leather workshop classes. I need to go there this saturday to get some neatsfoot oil, and while I looked up the opening hours, I found their page for workshop classes. http://birdsall-leather.com.au/product.php?productid=3820&cat=160&page=1
