Calling all aspiring shoe designers! Let's brainstorm how to create, test and launch our footwear ideas, and explore eco-friendly ways to source, craft and create shoes. Regular Meetups with local designers for ideas and inspiration!
Our first Meetup!
*Meet the Designer: Frank Beneduci / Beneduci Shoemakers*
Beneduci Shoemakers is a workshop and store that creates handmade leather shoes. At this meet-up, we will have a chance to meet owner and designer Frank Beneduci, and tour his shop and showroom.
Don't miss this chance to learn about shoe design from a master! Come check out his craft and styles, and explore the 1950s-era machines he uses to make everything happen.
There will also be plenty of time to meet each other and network at our first event. Looking forward to breaking the ice and meeting current and aspiring shoe designers from around the Bay.
