Learn how to create a one-of-a-kind pair of espadrilles using both machine and hand sewing.
You’ll get to choose your fabrics and coordinating thread. No prior sewing experience is
required -- we promise anyone can do this! In class we will finish one shoe and send you home with the skills and supplies to finish hand sewing the second.
The workshop fee includes a pair of espadrilles soles, fabric, thread, heavy duty hand needle
and all tools needed to make the shoes. We will need your shoe size prior to class, so please
make sure to include it in the notes when you check out or e-mail us at
