Fabulous Flats (2 Day Course)

I actually made a pair of wearable leather ballet pumps! Only with really good, patient help on this course. Really enjoyed it; thank you!

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.
