Shoemaker, bettybossyboots

Betty Ennis has incorporated her lifetime of learning in art, craft, textiles, fashion, film, music, renovating and building into the trade of shoemaking. Motivated by never being able to find what she likes, she learnt basic shoemaking skills at an RMIT short course and multiple advanced workshops with master shoemaker Luna Newby. Sourcing unusual, one-off finds of quality leathers, she creates funky men’s and women’s shoes and boots on commission along with her signature range of unisex lace-up derbies and boots with a definite nod to the sixties. Betty’s boots feature in IF: Industrial Fashion, and in her exhibition at Two Birds Brewing.
