Create the perfect summer accessory by making your own custom Indigo resist dyed Espadrilles!
Espadrilles are a great introduction to shoemaking and no previous shoemaking or sewing experience is required.
Students will spend the first day at The Contemporary Textile Studio Co-op learning how to dye the canvas upper in natural indigo using various resist dye patterns. The second session will take place at the Art and Sole Academy studio where students will sew their fabric uppers together and learn traditional hand stitching techniques for assembling the upper to the traditional jute outsole.
