Bethan Horn

2015 QEST Heritage Crafts Association Apprentice - Cordwaining

Bethan graduated with a BA (Hons) in Footwear and Accessories Design from De Montfort University in 2010.  Since graduating, Bethan has designed footwear not only for the British high street, but for companies all over the world. However, since learning the skills of hand-making shoes at university, Bethan’s passion has always been with bespoke footwear and the pure enjoyment of crafting an original product from start to finish with quality materials.

QEST Heritage Crafts Association funding enabled Bethan to further develop her craftsmanship by doing an apprenticeship with QEST Scholar Ruth Emily Davies.
