And that´s not all...

I have 3 more unique bonuses for you.

More types of fastening

I love the variability of possible designs of the sandals. And I will teach you how to create your sandals in more designs.

Decorating the leather

In the course, I will teach you simple leather decorating techniques that will allow you to create truly original shoes.

Children's sandals

I'll teach you how to adjust this type of leather strip sandals for children. These sandals are suitable for children approximately from the age of 4.

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. The video lessons will be revealed to you gradually week by week in the first 3 weeks.
  • 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. We will work together from the 27th of May until the 30th of June. I will come to the group and answer all your questions at least 3 times a week, but usually, I am there daily.
  • 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.

It won't be another unfinished online course...

 

  • Thanks to my personal support and the group's support, you'll really finish your shoes.
  • You will have access to all the lessons in the members´ section and all my answers and advice in the support fb group for 2 years.
  • You will be able to repeat the process at any time and make more shoes for yourself or for your loved ones.

 

Why barefoot shoes?

Barefoot shoes are shoes that feel like walking barefoot. They are very flexible and adapt to your feet as you walk.

Barefoot footwear :

  • anatomical toe shape with sufficient space for fingers
  • thin sole, which keeps you in contact with the surface you are walking on
  • no arch support to keep your foot muscles properly engaged when you walk
  • soft and flexible shoes that allow your feet to move naturally when you walk
  • the advantage of hand sewn barefoot shoes is that they are made exactly for your feet

Classic footwear:

  • inappropriate toe shape, which pushes the thumb against fingers and can lead to deformities
  • Thick soles that you can't feel anything through and you are therefore less dexterous in terrain
  • a reinforced arch that causes your foot muscles to work incorrectly and can cause your arch to fall off
  • often hard, unyielding upper material in which your feet cannot move freely
  • sizes correspond to average feet, they do not count with the variability in the shape of the feet

Testimonials from the shoe-sewing courses

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 🙏❤️
