The Art and Sole Academy is the first shoemaking school in Canada to offer classes and workshops for those interested in learning the art of shoemaking. The Academy was founded by Canadian designer and shoemaker Jennifer Allison in 2014 with the goal in mind to make shoemaking accessible to a general audience.

Jennifer is originally from North Bay, Ontario and fell into the shoe industry unexpectedly after studying Fashion Design at Ryerson University in Toronto Canada. Upon graduation, she has had the opportunity to live and work throughout Canada, United States, South America, Asia and Europe fine tuning her shoemaking skills and gaining industry experience designing for various companies. Her work has been featured in many publications such as Vogue, Harpers Bazaar, In Style, Elle and Flare magazine to name a few and has been worn by many reputable icons such as, Cameron Diaz, Anne Hathaway, Blake Lively and Rihanna.
