Amanda Overs - Course Tutor
I launched I Can Make Shoes (A home shoemaking school) back in 2010 with the goal to make shoemaking an 'at-home' craft which could be done by complete beginners. It was my wish to create a non-intimidating place for people to learn and most importantly to teach a craft which my students could repeat from home.
Fast forward 10 years and my team and I have taught thousands of students from all over the world. Many of my past students have used this skill to launch new careers and go on to start successful shoe brands of their own!
Here's what our students had to say
"Honestly, this workshop was a dream come true! The teachers couldn't have been any more patient, skilled or kind! The shoes were super fun to make and we were all very proud of our work. I would give this course 6 stars if I could!"
