Shoes and Craft

A shoemaker's blog about shoemaking

I posted several tutorials in the past 5 years, on youtube, wordpress, behance, several forums so pretty much all the social media I could reach and imagine (and: had access).
I start to feel that these don’t get enough attention – most probably, because it is hard to find them. So here they are, I collected them. Read and learn.


Let me know if I should post any more. I will consider if I would do it. On the other hand – as I expressed this opinion a many times – I only believe that a Craft should be taught personally, from a good teacher. Internet is a great help, but for the basics, for really good, deep knowledge a teacher is a must. No video, no book, no nothing is a good alternative, wherever you are, whatever your situation is – without proper tuition you loose your money and your time and only make ‘almost’ good pieces.

If you mean shoemaking seriously (I mean you want to learn it) consider to come at least on of these courses:
