About The Event
Reinvent your summer footwear with a fun evening of Espadrille making. Espadrilles are the perfect footwear for the holiday season and can transition your look from day to night. In this 3hr workshop you will design, size, cut and stitch your own pair of shoes that are ready to wear!
No sewing experience is required as you will learn each step, therefore this project is great for all levels. You will shape and pin the shoes to the sole and finally hand-stitch the fabric to assemble. A wide range of fabrics will be available for you to use and all materials and tools are provided. The shoes include the use premium jute soles so you’ll be sure to love wearing your comfy shoes.
It is also a long process and in the 3hrs you may have only completed 1 shoe, you can take the thread and needle home to complete the 2nd shoe.
£40.00 includes everything you need to make your Espadrilles.
Please feel free to bring your own fabric if you wish. 40cm x 55cm is plenty for 1 pair of shoes, cotton works best.
