I Can Make Shoes – a guide to home shoemaking


(Hardback Book – Limited copies)

To mark a decade (OMG I CAN’T BELIEVE ITS BEEN 10 YEARS!) since we opened the doors to the school, our very first hardback shoemaking book is here!

Packed full of easy-to-follow tutorials on everything from design and leather selection to construction, pattern-making and lasting. This is more than your average shoemaking book – it’s the ultimate guide made specifically for beginners to get started crafting shoes from home.

Cutting through all of the industry faff that complicates the craft, this book is like having your own course tutor at your fingertips – except this tutor is over 150 pages packed full of the I Can Make Shoes secrets to contemporary shoemaking.

What’s inside:

  • Over 150 colour pages of pure shoemaking gold!

  • Shoe design templates and tips on how to teach yourself to draw.
