Make your own espadrille shoes in this amazing summer workshop! 

In one lovely afternoon, you'll learn to craft a custom pair of real shoes, featuring your choice of custom colorful fabric uppers. You won't believe how easy it is! 

In this workshop you will:

  • Cut, reinforce, and sew the lined fabric upper portion of the shoes on a sewing machine.
  • Learn how to sew the lined fabric uppers to the pre-made woven jute soles with a special hand-sewing stitch.
  • Make one shoe from start to finish & be well-prepared to finish up the second sandal on your own!

Materials: Class fee includes all materials necessary to make a pair of espadrilles (woven soles, hand-sewing needle, and cotton yarn) -- but does not include fabric so that students can select their choice of fabric. Fabric will be available for purchase both in advance or before class with a 10% student discount . You will need: 

Skill requirements: This is not a learn-to-sew class; you must have basic sewing skills and be comfortable using a sewing machine. Our Sewing 101 (or equivalent experience) is a minimum prerequisite to this workshop.

IMPORTANT: Please be sure to select your shoe size before clicking "add to cart"! See size chart above in photos.

**To allow time for the soles to ship to us, registration for this workshop will close on at midnight on Monday 6/10!**
