Start Your Future in Footwear

I took the 3 day course around September last year and I was very pleased I did. To be able to construct a pair of heels from start to finish with my own bare hands was a very satisfying experience. I would highly recommend this course to anyone who is interested in footwear as a career or anyone who simply loves shoes as itís definitely worth the money.

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.
