What you'll do
- Choose from Offset Warehouse's stock of gorgeous ethical fabrics
- Cut your pattern and machine seam the edges
- Learn to shape and pin the shoe to the sole
- Handstitch the fabrics to the sole with waxed linen thread
- Enjoy local snacks and drinks from The Gallery Cafe
Our experienced makers offer expert instruction and support, and everyone walks out in their own pair of slippers. All materials are provided and no experience is necessary. 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.
