You. Can. Make. Shoes! Let’s do it before Spring finally gets here so you can wear them all season!
In this one day, 3 hour workshop you will learn all the steps involved in creating your very own pair of slip on flat espadrilles. This class is great for beginners as there is very little complicated machine sewing and the uppers are stitched to the soles by hand. Once you make your first pair you’ll be dreaming up so many more!
Most materials to make your espadrilles are included with the workshop, you only need to purchase fabric! Espadrilles are available in toddler sizes 3-11, kids sizes 2-5, and women’s 6-9.5. Please put the shoe size you would like (“woman’s 8” or “toddler 3”) in the notes section during checkout. If you are a half size, the soles tend to run slightly large so sizing down would be recommended. If you are above a size 9.5 please contact us to discuss your options!
Please note that while 3 hours is ample time to stitch your shoes, but depending on how quickly you hand sew you may need to finish them at home.
