Sneak Peek

I absolutely loved it and had so much fun. Everything was broken down into steps and it made the task of making shoes from home feel so much more achievable. Im now busy buying materials so I can do just that. Thank you for such a great weekend!

The Host

After studying traditional footwear in Australia, Amanda wanted to bring the shoemaking craft to the 'made at home' space. In 2010, she launched I CAN MAKE SHOES, a private shoe making school in London utilising techniques that requires no heavy machinery and has complete beginners making their own shoes from their kitchen tables in no time at all.
