Espadrilles are fun to make and oh so satisfying! Imagine sewing up your own pair of shoes in whatever fabric you like!

Come along to my studio where you will cut, sew in the machine and then hand sew your very own Espadrilles. To make sure you get a snug and comfortable fit you will need to get one size down from what you normally wear. The Espadrille soles I buy are made of jute rope and are in European sizes. Please refer to the attached sizing chart to determine your best fit and then please send me a private message to let me know so I can get your size ready and prepped.

Please bring half a metre each of a good weight linen, canvas or cotton for the outer shoe and a lighter weight cotton or linen for the lining. I will supply the interfacing and hemp cord and needles with which to do blanket stitch arond the edge of your finished shoe for that traditional Espadrille look.

Please note if this class has more than two students it will be held at an alternate venue. I will confirm the venue location with you prior to the session.
