Who am I?


My name is Karolina Castkova. I am a medical doctor, wife, and mother of 4 children. Since 2017 I have been teaching barefoot shoe sewing courses and I have studied the impact of barefoot walking on our health. I sew shoes for my whole family so we all have feet in comfort. I'd love to teach you how to do it too.

Testimonials from the last shoe-sewing course

Karolina is a fabulous teacher. Her videos and experience in shoe making are supported by the Facebook group that goes with the course and where course members can ask any questions that come up in the process. She’s very responsive and will help you within a short period of time. On top of that the course members will show their progress and guide and support you along. I recommend it!

As a student of the first course I want to say - I recommend it so much!!! Karolina is a wonderful teacher who really knows very well what she is teaching, and this is why she can help you with anything that comes up. And you do not learn only to sew shoes, you learn to dye leather, work with leather, and the big major thing that worth it all by itself: you learn to make a pattern. That means you can make shoes to anyone! I am so happy I participated in this course. It is proffessional and fun. Thank you 🙏❤️

I'm glad I managed to be of help. I wasn't going to give away my profession as a cobbler to start with because I didn't want to distract from the lessons, but, when I saw that materials weren't that easy to obtain for everyone I felt it would be best to confess and try to help! Thank you so much for running this course Karolina. I feel like I have filled in the missing link for my skill set 😊

Thanks to everyone‘s contributions. It’s been much more workshop than I thought possible online, sharing mistakes and learning as well as progress. I also think we’ve worked you hard, Karolina. Thank you.
