ASW Online Experience: Design Your Espadrilles - Barcelona
Luis and Kathe will meet you virtually at their workshop in Barcelona, in a very unique and special place, where you will feel surrounded by finished espadrilles and their parts.
First, they will introduce you to the story of these beautiful shoes and the materials needed for their construction. You will learn about this old tradition, and how this shoe passed from being built by and for humble people, to be one of the most trendy styles of shoes nowadays.
Then, every participant will choose the colour and size of the base, the laces, the threads, and the type of stitching. Once ready, they will stitch together your espadrilles LIVE while following your instructions. Once finished, Kathe and Luis will teach you the different ways to lace them up and use them.
Finally, and very important, they will ship your creation to your home with free worldwide FedEx shipping.
Please note that this interactive Zoom video call will be limited to a maximum of 12 participants in order to provide you with the best experience! Your meeting link will be found directly on the ticket. You can access the link without installing the Zoom app and it can be used on both your laptop and mobile device. Should you have any issues, please find our Zoom instructions here.
