And how does this online course actually work?

  • The course is in the form of video lectures arranged in the member section - in the videos, I will show you the step-by-step process from cutting to sewing. The videos are short and factual. They are available for you right after purchasing the course.
  • With my support in the Facebook group - you're not alone in this. I'm available in the Facebook group throughout your shoe-making process to give you feedback on your steps and answer your questions. This is how you won't get stuck anywhere while sewing your barefoot shoes and you will finish them.
  • You'll tailor it to your time - unlike full weekend live courses, online courses are divided into shorter lessons, so you can make it even with small children or if you have a lot of work. It's up to you whether you sew all day Saturday or just for an hour a day after work or when the kids are asleep. You will have 2 years of access to all the videos in the member section and to the content of the Facebook group. After 2 years you will be able to prolong your access.
  • Suitable for beginners - you can do it even if you've never done anything like this before. The videos are made easy so that everyone can understand them. We sew the shoes by hand, you don't need a sewing machine or other specialized equipment.
  • You will also learn how to make shoes for your loved ones - you will not only sew shoes for yourself, but you will also learn how to adapt the fit to other adults´ or child´s feet.

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.
