We don’t really have any strict age limits on our courses as it depends more on the student and their confidence and capabilities. We have had young teenagers on our courses before, we would just need parental consent for any student under 18, and parental supervision for any student under 15 years old.

Yes, our founder Amanda happens to be a business start-up mentor at the British Library. It’ll come to no surprise that she specialises in footwear!

Private mentoring with Amanda normally starts off with an initial Skype call to discuss your goals and how she may be able to support you going forward. She charges for the initial Skype meeting to make sure she is spending time with clients who are serious about getting into the industry. The initial Skype call is £100 for the hour and if you decide to work together in the future, there will be discounted rates for ongoing sessions. Please email us at info@icanmakeshoes.com if you would like to book a mentoring session.
