Saturday Shoemaking Workshop

By Juta Shoes


Sneak Peek


Join us for a three-hour shoemaking course, where you'll design and make your own bespoke leather espadrilles.

All our leather is reclaimed from local factory offcuts, and we have a wide range of colours, textures, and patterns. 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.

Choose from our stock of leather reclaimed from local factory offcuts, and cut out the pattern for your shoe.

Learn to shape and pin the shoe to the sole, then hand-stitch the leather to the sole with waxed linen thread.

You'll also enjoy local lunch, snacks and drinks while you work.

Our experienced makers offer expert instruction and support, and everyone walks out in their own pair of shoes.
