What you'll do
Join our social enterprise studio in Bethnal Green to learn to make your own reclaimed leather espadrilles. You'll choose your material from our stock of offcuts (vegan options available) , cut your pattern, and learn the sewing technique. Taught by our excellent makers, there's no experience necessary, and we provide all the equipment and materials you need to hand-make your espadrilles. Everyone walks out in their own pair of shoes.
Lunch We'll provide a fresh local lunch. Vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free options available.
Coffee and tea We'll have plenty of refreshments.
Materials We'll provide soles, leather, waxed linen thread, and all the supplies you need to make your own shoes.
