Put a little pep in your step by wearing your very own handmade espadrilles! In this 3 hour class, you'll learn to make the perfect, comfortable shoe! This class is great for beginners who have a little bit of sewing experience. In class you will finish one shoe and possibly get started on the second, which you can later finish at home. Shoe bases are included in your class. At check out please let us know your shoe size! Please note the bases go up to size 9. If you are a 10, we can order the wedge base but not a flat sole base. If you are between sizes, size down as the shoe bases only come in whole sizes.
