Reviewed as one-in-a-lifetime experience by more than 20,000 guests, this is already a must-do in Barcelona according to BuzzFeed, the New York Times, the Washington Post, and others. Awarded Best Experience 2020 by TripAdvisor, during this Onsite Espadrilles Experience you will stitch your own traditional Catalan espadrilles, which you will keep afterwards as the most amazing souvenir.
We have specialised on Team Building Sessions, and have hosted already more than 500 companies, such as Facebook, McKinsey, Instagram, Pinterest, 6Sense, Microsoft, Kyriba, Google, JustFav and even the Catalan government. It is truly one of the most specials activities you can find for your team. Guaranteed.
We will meet at one of our workshops, where your whole team can see the finished products and the materials. The artisans will be with you at all time leading and providing the materials and tools.
First, we will introduce your team to the story of espadrilles and the materials needed for their construction. You will all learn about this beautiful tradition, and how this shoe design passed from being built for humble people, to be one of the most trendy in fashion nowadays.
Then every guest will choose the size of the base, the color of the laces and the preferred style. Once ready, we will stitch our own traditional espadrilles, and then learn the different ways to lace them up. There will be more than 100K different combinations! Get your team ready for fast decisions and a great fun challenge.
Finally, each of your guests 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. A wearable memory of Barcelona that they can all show off at the office.
During the session we will serve tapas, cava and will turn it into a party if the team is up for it. The duration is 2 hours, and we are perfectly located in Barcelona downtown, one minute from Ramblas.
For last-minute Workshops send us a message, any time any day, we should be able to accommodate you along the day. We have a team of more than 20 artisans.
