These models are made to the RTW224 last. Aniline dyed leather, English welt. Full JR. And this is the upcoming RTW model in dark bordeaux (this will be black most probably). French boxcalf leather, English welt. Full JR.
All of these footwear could win a “the most…” category. We didn’t accept more than 4 students, so we can pay enough attention to their work. This is far the most complicated model, in terms of technical difficulties (there are some left to solve, but this is the first prototype…)
First pictures from the prototyping course. I promise: much better ones will come soon.
Here is my new serie.. talking about everyday happening in my workshop. A serious stuff coming soon: If you would know how long I wanted to jump into boot-making.. (the monitor in the background was a necessary part in design course) About 20 kg of old, rusted tools, just arrived into my workshop. Welcome home… Read More
First of all – I am fine. I work hard, basically the same things I have posted so many times: making shoes, keeping courses. The usual. The actual course is a shoe prototype making – or as they call it in fancy design colleges: 3D model making.. Anyway: let me share a few thoughts about… Read More
The course has been finished and as soon I can process the tons of photos I made I will post a gallery – I believe soon, later this afternoon. By the way – it was amazing what intensive practice can bring out from people.
Yeah, finally. We will start with 3 models: – flat ballerina, – dress men and – rounded toe men And yes, we will provide EVERYTHING for make shoes with them – a complete DIY kit (insole, stiffeners, upper, sole, heel, … so what you just need). Pictures come soon.
This is a report about day 3. At the very first picture you can admire Robert Scheffler’s pretty work.
We have finished our first meanform! What is that? Well, that is the basic of patter-construction, a pretty difficult thing to make.. and guess what this grumpy master (me) has selected to make? Yes, a pump – which needs plenty difficult solutions to implement. Tomorrow I promise I will make some pics.
Finally, today a new course has been started – design, which doesn’t only mean concept visualization in my vocabulary but strong technical knowledge, in terms of knowing techniques and pattern-construction. Pretty much work for 6 days, but will do it!
My swedish friends flu back home, after a few, really fun days in Hungary. Some pictures about the trip. Lerning new finishing tricks with the latest fashion… surprising from a traditional shoemaker, isn’t it? Then having a traditional lunch at Lake Balaton. See you guys in the next… Read More
This is the Swedis Shoemaker Master’s Association in my workshop, learn a little bit about hand finishing. It was a cool day.
