Come to this workshop, and make your own traditional Catalan espadrilles, which you will take for free. Be a craftsman for 120 minutes!
We will meet in one of our workshops, where you can see the finished products and materials. The artisans will be with you at all times guiding you and providing the materials and tools. It is a very fun workshop for children too.
First, we will introduce you to the history of Catalan espadrilles and the materials necessary for their creation. You will learn about this beautiful tradition and how this shoe went from being built by and for humble people to being one of the most modern in fashion today. For men and women.
Then, you will choose the color and size of the base, the laces and the threads. Once ready, we will build our own traditional Catalan espadrilles and then learn the different ways to tie them to the ankle, each with its symbolic. You will have fun, it is not difficult and you will have built your own pair of traditional “espardenyes”.
Finally, each guest will leave with their own creation and a really great story to tell their friends, something that is barely available for visitors, not even for locals, since espadrilles are still built in villages outside the city.
