Shoemaking Process Demonstration with Michelle Quick

Join current ON::VIEW resident Michelle Quick as she demonstrates key stages of the shoemaking process, showcasing the transformation of 2D materials into a 3D object. 

Ongoing demonstrations, stop in at any time. This event is free and open to the public.

Michelle Quick is a footwear and accessory designer, maker, and educator. She hails from Detroit, Michigan and attributes her early interest in the construction of products to the city’s extensive manufacturing history. Quick first started to design and produce fashion accessories in the early 2000’s at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago where she received her interdisciplinary BFA degree with a focus on fibers, fashion, and sculpture.

After working in production for a small shoe manufacturer in Chicago, she pursued a Master’s degree in Fashion Footwear at the prestigious Cordwainers at London College of Fashion. Upon completing her degree, Michelle continued to work in footwear production, specializing in bespoke shoemaking techniques, patterning, and sample making.

She joined the Accessory Design department at the Savannah College of Art and Design in 2011. Michelle believes it’s important for young designers to understand the power and responsibility of the decisions they make during the design process. She has led study trips to Europe and Asia, exposing students to all levels of material sourcing and manufacturing.

In addition to teaching, Michelle also runs her own bespoke leather goods company, MBQ Handmade, creating one-of-a-kind products for a diverse clientele.
