Shoes and Craft

A shoemaker's blog about shoemaking

So, here again, preparing the next course – this time in Portland.

As it was announced, we will start with a Men Shoe Making Course – level 1., but in the same time girls (or actually anyone) can choose lady’s shoes. My idea was make PP 42 for men, and PP 38 for woman, but getting more and more requirements about individuals sizes, I decided to make some extra work and let the students choose the size (ask for details please by mail!).

So men shoe will be a wholecut, the ladies version is a tiny oxford.

And an exra course – patternmaking

As I stay one more day finally I decided to keep a short course about patternmaking which seems to be a big problem to many shoemakers. As one day is not really enough for hand-on, I will show a lot of basic pattern + some tricks. I we have some time, I will give a chance to practice some basic design. Anyway I hope I will be ready with my DVDs about the cemented construction and patternmaking, so this would mean an extra help.

The one day pattern-making course costs 250 USD. Please register now: info@koronya.com

Stay tuned I will come back with more soon.
