This was so much more than a shoe crafting class. The storytelling, the party vibe, the shoes, the food, everything was amazing. The staff was also really patient and helpful, they made a very complex thing to be approachable! besides, the were soooo lovely and energetic. Lots of laughs and even dancing! What a truly unforgettable experience, I left knowing more about Catalunya, espadrilles and with a really comfy and unique pair of shoes. 100% recommended!

Absolutely amazing experience! First of all we were informed about the interesting history of Espandrilles, then we chose colors and shape and we went to work. With the help of the teachers it is really easy and to handle for everyone. One of the best experiences. I learned so much and it was so much fun. I’d live to do it again.
