To mark a decade of teaching shoemaking, The I Can Make Shoes founder, Amanda has launched her very first hardback shoemaking book, A Beginner's Guide to Home Shoemaking. Packed full of easy-to-follow tutorials on everything from design to construction. This book really is the first of its kind, bringing the craft of shoemaking into the 'at-home' craft/maker space in a fun and accessible way. This is more than just a shoemaking instructional book – it's been beautifully printed and bound making it a book that makers and crafters alike would be proud to display in their collection of titles or even in pride of place on the coffee table. 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.
