The past two weeks have seen over 200 school students from Waikanae School visit the museum and partake in ‘shoe-themed’ activities. They saw shoes, learnt all about the variety of materials shoes can be made from and then had a go at making a pair for themselves. The results were extraordinary and varied wildly. From kiwi jandals to boots made almost entirely of sellotape, the students had no shortage of imagination when developing their own style of shoes. A visit enjoyed by museum volunteers almost as much as it was by the students themselves.
