TESTIMONIALS

I took this course because I wanted to make my own shoes that were suited for my feet, with colors and patterns of my choosing. The result was amazing, I wear my super-comfortable shoes every day. Bianca is the funniest mentor and teaches in a structured way all the necessary information to know how to make a pair of shoes on your own.
