Bespoke Reclaimed Leather Shoemaking

Great experience. The teachers were super nice and we got to take home our lovely new espadrilles!

Bespoke Reclaimed Leather Shoemaking

The ladies are very nice and open to trying new designs for your shoes. I needed their help with the tricky parts (like the corners), but loved the shoes we made. Great gift.

Bespoke Reclaimed Leather Shoemaking

From all the workshops I have been on, this one has been the most theraputic. Pick your materials, string, sole and get cracking! Good thing is when your hands start to hurt a little bit, you can ask for help. The shoes turned out to be very comfortable with.
