Shoemaking Online Courses Registration Is Now Open!



Three weeks have passed since my last post and the reason for that is that I was a very busy bee, and this time it's all doing with MAKING SHOES BLOG. Now when my collection is ready and it's on a roll, I am fully committed to you my dear readers.
In my last post I announced that I'm planning an online shoemaking courses, and the feedback that I got from all of you was incredible, you helped me understand what courses are needed, and some of them were way far from my primary plan. Since then I'm tightly working on the courses, and they building up in this massive stream of content that I'm very confident and excited about.
So, here we are three weeks later and I'm super stoked to announce


MAKING SHOES ONLINE COURSES REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN



The schedule for launching online shoemaking courses is September 16 .


Now let me explain how it will work:

* The courses will be divided into two categories:
Beginners and Advanced (all registered users will have access to both categories. )

* The online courses will be held on a new Making Shoes Membership platform ( which is exciting as well).

* There will be 2-3 lessons per week. 8-12 lessons per month.(for each category)

* Lesson length: 45-90 min (each)

* Each lesson includes home assignment

Communication during this courses is very important, as I believe it will help you to learn and integrate it faster with your own work. So each week I'll be posting assignment solutions at the shoemaking & creative community, where you can share your own work and collaborate with each other and me.
As I said before the courses are building up strong . So we already have more than 33 courses that I will produce during the next couple of month. So as you can understand the courses will only grow and get more variety to them .

Here is a sneak peak of courses for the first month for beginners and advanced users. (This is not the actual order of the courses) 




Monthly membership (30 days) for shoemaking courses is 30 euro.
Pre Register list is now open and you will receive the payment invoice soon by email.

  4. I just registered and I want the Beginners full course on making ballerinas. I would love to jump straight into the advanced courses as they look so exciting, but I feel I must do the basics first to check I am working correctly, plus there are still a few simple problems I have. eg. Sometimes my centre design line does not always correspond with the centre measurement of some lasts, so I land up with a design that is not in the centre of the shoe vamp when on the foot?? I am obviously doing something wrong!
    By first doing the ballerina course I can check if I am correctly doing all the basic steps throughout, from measuring and designing on the last to the finished shoe.
    P.S. So excited about these courses...cant wait to start!

  7. I have been waiting for a long time for you to give a course. I have registered and would like take your beginning class even though I already know how. I would like to learn new techniques from beginning to advance. So happy you are offering this online class. Will this be on our own time as I am extremely busy with trade shows etc etc.

  8. Hi Sveta, I would absolutely love to do your advanced course but just wanted to check whether the courses are a month long or whether the membership fee/course is ongoing?

    Thanks so much for offering these!

    1. Hi Janine,
      The courses will start at Sept 16 and will be ongoing, with 2-3 lessons per week, 8-12 per month. The membership fee is 30 euro monthly, as we have a lot of subjects to cover as from the old school and more innovative approach to shoemaking. We all have families, jobs and life going on, so it was important to me to create platform where people could learn shoemaking in their own time.

    2. Thanks Sveta. I'm not sure I can afford it for more than one month (even though it is very reasonably priced!)... can I join in at a later stage if things are looking up financially?

      Really appreciate your reply and that you're trying to make a platform which suits everybody.

    3. I understand, you will be able to come back later, but please understand that I'm building the courses in linear structure, so that more advanced lessons will rely on previous ones.

  9. Hi, I'm a beginner and I even don't have proper tools yet, so I don't know how I will sew my ballerinas, I know how to sew by hand, and my sewing machine is not for leather, just basic home sewing machine...I hope I will manage to do this course somehow. But I really want to learn the basic first; I will watch all the videos with big eyes and hope I could do it some day.
    I want to ask if you could tell some links for a tools to buy, so maybe I could buy something right now because the shipping wont be the next day.
    So thanks for this course I can't wait to start.
    It is possible to save your videos for latter? I will this year on a building project and I won’t have a lot of time for shoes, but I would like to practice shoe design more latter.

    1. Hi,thank you for registration.
      At first you can buy skiving knife for . I just shared a good source for it on shoemaking & creative community, no affiliate interest, just good knifes and the cheapest prices. Also you must have lasts, cemented contact glue, top line cord for reinforcing the seam, adhesive tape, cutting board, hummer, lasting pincers,lasting tacks.If you search it on internet you can find many webs that sell it,so I suggest to look them locally. I don't know where you from,but you welcome to join our community. It's a good chance you will find a neighbor with a good resource lead.

      https://plus.google.com/u/0/communities/115340750588721295219?cfem=1

      Lessons will be available only on the membership site.

  24. Hi,

    I want to register but I have a few questions:
    -will you send a monthly invoice or do we pay the entire fee at once?
    -is it possible to unregister if we want to quit?

    I'd be interested in the advanced course, even though I'll have a look at the beginners course as well because it never hurts to repeat the basics

    1. Hi,
      Good questions! The fee will be monthly and sure you can quit.
      As I mentioned this before all the courses will be open to all registered users so when you feel ready, you can jump in. I even encourege you to do so, because the courses will be based on already poblished courses (just like in school :).

  25. Thank you for your answers, Sveta. I registered and can't wait for the courses to start.

  26. Hey Sveta!
    I would love to register, but I also have a few questions. You say that the lessons are based on each other which obviously makes sense. However, it sounds like you won't be able to go back ot other, older lessons? Like, can I register in a month and then watch the first lessons or will that not work? Can lessons only be watched once? I'm studying to be a doctor and busy as hell, so I might have long intervals between lessons. Would it be possible to go back and watch a lesson from three weeks ago for example? I would really appreciate your reply. Thanks!

    1. Hi Naomi,
      Everyone who is register to the courses will be able to see the previous lessons and they will be available to him anytime. So you can examine yourself with any lessons that already been added.
      Hopes it makes it clear now.

  27. Hi, I just registered.
    I should choose one I would take the advanced course, but never dismiss beginners course. It’s excellent we can access both. I am really interested about everything regarding design and construction/customization of lasts, heels and platforms. Thank you!
