The girls were absolutely lovely and patient. It was a really relaxed, chatty and satisfactory evening. I was so happy to walk on shoes made by myself the morning after! All my colleagues were positively impressed. Highly recommended :)

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!!!!

This was by far the best class I have done yet! The teachers were absolutely lovely and the activity itself was awesome! Loads of fun and don't be put off by location - super easy to find! They were really accomodating to my particular food needs as well, and I was able to have a yummy vegan breakfast. 100% would recommend, 10/10! Bring on summer so i can wear my shoes! If you're vegan they can also provide vegan leather!

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.

I really enjoyed this workshop with Juta Shoes! Hafiza knew everything there is to know about making espadrilles and was a great teacher. The leather and materials were recycled, high-quality offcuts. I recommend this fun workshop. Thank you so much. I love the furry slippers/espadrilles that I made.

All I can say about this workshop is wow! I has such a pleasant morning with Juta Shoes and I love what I made!!! We even had lunch included which was such a treat. The ladies themselves are super lovely and the setting in the farm is magically - highly recommend!

It was a good class in a lovely location. There was sufficient one to one time and we had enough time to make a pair of espadrilles. It will be helpful to have some signage to show where the class is on the farm.
