Why Shoemaking Courses Online is the best place to learn shoemaking
Every lesson length is between 45-95 minutes (and even more) and the main reason for it is, that I don't skip any step of the process, so you will receive full and detailed instructions. You hear my explanations, you see what I do and you follow my steps.
I really can't recommend this course highly enough. It's like you're there in the studio of an expert shoemaker getting a bird's eye view of how to make shoes. Plus she talks you through common beginner mistakes as you go so you know what not to do and what to look out for.
In every step of the process I focus on the mistakes that you can make and how to avoid them, so when you will finish my courses you could work by yourself.
It's important for me to explain , why you need to work in certain way because that is how you become independent.

Learn Shoemaking The Smart Way
I teach you what I believe and I teach you the same way I work .
I will teach you the smart and fast way to make shoes. How to use patterns and constructions that you already made and apply it for your next work. This way you will work faster and smarter.
In my Footwear Design course [ Practical Workshop] I will teach you how to create your own shoes, beyond the classic footwear types that you already learnt, meaning you will get a total freedom to create any type of footwear, your own shoes.
I took your courses... and finally opened my studio. Now everybody is wondering how I know much about shoemaking. In my country some are willing to pay me to teach them. Your are appreciated.
If you sourced for shoe making tools already, you should know this is not an easy task.
Shoe making tools and materials are not cheap and it is a real challenge to buy them in small quantity. Stores prefer to work with factories that make large orders.
Even bigger problem is, to find them all in one place, meaning you will need to spend some money on shipping as well.
Shoemaking Tools Kit [ Check the kit ]
This year I opened our Shoemaking Supplies Store where you can source tools and materials to start working on your shoes.
For our members I offer Shoemaking Tools Kit with big discount.
Shipping and Delivery
We have students from all over the world and ship everywhere.
All shoe lasts are made to order,so you will have to wait for your order to arrive. Considering the production and delivery time I will add this time to your membership so you will not miss anything.
We start learning shoemaking from basic, simple footwear construction courses to the more advanced and complicated courses. That is why I created a Shoemaking Program for you to follow.
There is no one answer to this question except, we all learn and work in different pace. The best why will be to show you an example of what you can do in this period of time:
Emma joined my online courses and here is her progress during the first 2 months period . Emma is a real hard worker and she shared her progress on our Facebook group:
I’m Sveta Kletina, founder of Shoemaking Courses Online. Like you, I have great passion for shoes and shoemaking. I’m a shoemaker and footwear designer who knows how challenging but in the same time rewarding it is, to create shoes by yourself from scratch. It takes a lot of dedication and work, but I love it.
