This is the process of creating the Espadrilles. It might seem difficult, but it isn't necessarily. There are several difficulty levels from which you can choose. We had 5 year old kids on that managed to finish the workshop. You will be fine!

  • This was a very fun workshop! We got to pick the base for the shoes and the color of the ribbons and the hosts walked us through making the designs. They also told us the history of the shoes which was super interesting. We had a small group so every person was able to get hands-on help when we needed it and everyone ended up with a very unique souvenir to take home. Definitely recommend!5/5 Kelly, March, 2023
  • We loved this activity! ❤️ Our artisan teaching the class was fun, knowledgeable, helpful, and made the whole experience memorable! the location in the Gothic quarter was so fun. The shoes turned out adorable and were much more comfortable than any pair I've ever owned. This was totally worth it. It is a unique experience you'll definitely remember and enjoy5/5 Trina, February, 2023
  • The reviews are raving for a reason! I had an amazing time, the staff had the most beautiful energy and worked closely with me. They were inviting and cheerful, like the experience is mostly the energy and the the espadrilles are the cherry on top of it all!5/5 Kayla, November, 2022
