Espadrille Workshops at Artisans and Adventurers
Join us to make your own bespoke sustainable leather espadrilles at Artisans and Adventurers in London and Margate. We'll show you how to make your own espadrilles from reclaimed leather and environmentally-friendly jute soles. Choose from our slippers, peep-toe sliders, or crossover sandal pattern.

What you'll do
- Choose from our stock of reclaimed leather
- Choose your style and cut out your pattern (choose from our slipper, peep-toe slides, or crossover sandal styles)
- Learn to shape and pin the shoe to the sole
- Handstitch the leather to the sole with waxed linen thread
Our experienced makers offer expert instruction and support, and everyone walks out in their own pair of shoes. All materials are provided and no experience necessary. All our leather is reclaimed from local factory offcuts, and we have a wide range of colours. We use premium jute soles sourced from southern Spain, which are thicker, more robust, and comfier than any other espadrille sole we've seen, so you'll be sure to love wearing your shoes.
Where we'll be:
Artisans & Adventurers is an outlet for small artisan enterprises around the globe, sourcing and designing products that bring joy across the entire production process, from maker to owner. We'll be running two workshops in their Columbia Road store, and two in their seaside Margate boutique.
The London workshop is at 146 Columbia Road, London, E2 7RG
The Margate workshop is at 34 King Street, Margate, Kent, CT9 1DA
