I got this email from Janne;

If so could you please post that Marcel Szabo and I invite to a three days seminar in my shop in Hara, Sweden. The seminar will be about how to make Norwegian welted shoes/boots which is an Hungarian speciality. Marcel will show us how to do it all the way from trimming the insole to the finished shoe. The last and the upper will be made beforehand.

The course will be held in July 25, 26 and 27. Marcel will invite later to a Handmade Shoemaking Course 2 in Hungary.

Kind Regards
