Well, this time something new – wholecut comes close. I decided to use the simple wholecut design in the men shoemaking course and a bi more sophisticated design to the high heel.

If there is enough interest I am able to make a weekend course also – please contact me directly on: info@koronya.com


The last few days were spent in the workshop day and night, teaching students, making my bespoke orders (mainly in weekends and nights), but was fun. I was surrounded with many girls.. I know, hard, but someone has to make this job too 🙂

So here are my students from January (they arrived a late later, so just have left). From left: Alina (Romania), Tia (USA), me (local, Hungary) and Ewelina (Poland). All the finished their shoes and get their diploma (without finished product I don’t give any certificate).
