Nicky has worked in the shoe business as a qualified shoe designer.  But is self-taught in shoe customisation techniques which is a different ball game compared to hand drawing and using a computer. She has learnt through trial and error using various glues, crystals, application skills etc. and now knows which are the best methods.


This beginner workshop will show you how to practice her FIVE top tips tricks mastered over the last 13 years

  1. How to use the right amount of crystal glue

  2. How to carefully apply crystal onto your shoes

  3. How to create a design, sized to the space on your shoes

  4. How to make a shoe design template

  5. How to mirror-image your crystal design onto shoes, so that the left foot matches the right foot!

General info

All you need to bring along to a workshop is a pair of shoes.  And reading glasses if you wear them already, as it is close-up work.

Your shoes can be brand new or well-worn.  They can be any colour, any upper material, any shoe style and any heel height.  Adults or children shoes.  You can bring more than one pair of shoes if you would like to, and choose on the day what to embellish.  If there is enough time, you can embellish as many items as you wish.

If a member of your group is not a sparkly shoe fan, that's okay too.  They can bring something more suitable to them.  We have seen wellies, high heels, crocs, slippers, bridal shoes, dance shoes, boots, sports shoes, clutch bags, totes, walking sticks, books, vases, make up, brushes, hair clips, drinking glasses, satin gowns, t-shirts, leather jacket, glasses case...  

Crystal can be added to anything!

To book a workshop

We ask for the payment of one place as a non-refundable deposit.  The final group numbers, and balance payment, will not be due until 4 weeks before your party date.

Colour chart

If you would like to pre-book your crystal colours, please ask for our colour chart.  Or you can choose from the selection on the day.  If you have a particular colour  you want, this can be arranged at no extra charge, in advance of the workshop.
