Jadd Friedman
Shoe Making
Spring | 2019

Self-taught shoemaker Jadd Friedman already has his own successful business in Suffolk, which specialises in stitch-down construction.

Funding from QEST will enable Jadd to attend a 12 day, one to one course at Carréducker (co-founded by James Ducker and 1997 QEST Scholar Deborah Carré) to learn hand lasting and hand welting techniques. Skilled in every stage of the production process, Jadd can then offer training in his own factory, and will also offer full rebuild repairs of hand welted shoes – a service few shoe repairers can provide.
