During our workshop you will build your own traditional catalan espadrilles, which you will keep for free. You will become an artisan for 120 minutes! We will meet at one of our workshops, where you can see the finished products and the materials. The artisans will be with you at all time leading and providing the materials and tools. Very fun for kids too. First, we will introduce you to the story of espadrilles and the materials needed for their construction. You will learn about this beautiful tradition, and how this shoe passed from being built by and for humble people, to be one of the most trendy in fashion nowadays. Then every guest will choose the color and size of the base, the laces and the threads. Once ready, we will build our own traditional espadrilles, and then learn the different ways to tie them to the ankle. It will be fun, not difficult and you will have constructed your own pair of traditional "espardenyes". Finally, each guest will leave with its own creation and with a really cool story to tell to friends, something that it is hardly available to the visitors, not even locals, as the espadrilles are still built in the villages outside the city
