3 hour workshop
All levels welcome
Spitalfields City Farm, E1
by Juta Shoes
Design and make your own bespoke espadrilles from reclaimed leather in our social enterprise studio!
In this three-hour workshop, you'll design and craft your own handmade pair of leather espadrilles.
Our experienced makers offer expert instruction and support, and everyone walks out in their own pair of shoes - all materials provided and no experience necessary! 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.
We hold our workshop at Spitalfields City Farm, near Shoreditch High Street Station. Each workshop includes drinks, snacks, and local lunch from the farm. If the weather's nice during warmer months we'll be outside in the kitchen garden, otherwise we'll be inside their lovely yurt (with a wood-burning stove if needed!).
Juta Shoes is a social enterprise making handcrafted sustainable leather espadrilles in London, supporting local women into work.
We can also run our shoemaking workshops as bridal parties, teambuilding away days, or birthday parties - just get in touch about booking an anytime class!

A brilliant workshop tucked away in yurt in Spitalfields city farm. There was loads of leather to choose from, meaning everyone got the colour they wanted. Brilliant teaching and a gorgeous location. I will 100% be back.
This was such a great activity! The workshop was located in a cute bell tent in the middle of a city farm - with actual pigs, goats, donkeys!!! Our teacher was so patient and instructed us in a detailed way and there were so many leathers to choose from! Loved my shoes and this social enterprise!!!!
The workshop was great! I left with a pair of self made espadrilles, really nice. Joana and Hafiza were very nice and helpful, and taught very well. They had to change the venue, but it was a very nice environment . I loved the food! Would definitely recommend it.
