Dette kommer dere til å gjøre

Within a few hours, you will be able to construct your own pair of shoes (espadrilles in this case) by picking from a selection of leather in the studio (if you have your own material or would like to go the non-leather route, I will be happy to suggest alternative materials). From there, you can decide on a style you would like to pick then cut and stitch your own pair of shoes onto the soles provided (made out of jute and rubber (so it will be slip free). The types of style you get to make are the mule, sandal or slip-on as shown in the images*.

I have collected leather from various sources, mostly reclaimed from different projects to offcuts from manufacturers. While stitching your shoes, we can either chat or indulge in the refreshments provided.

The timing of the experience is just indicative, you can stay as along as you need to finish your shoes and also, the start time is flexible

*Note: If there are other styles of shoes you would like to make like the full shoe or sneaker style, there will be additional charges as it requires more time to create the item.
Other things to note
After booking, send me your shoe size (EU or UK). You can send me your foot measurements as well if you are unsure of the sizes.

My name is Lisa from Lisa Teng Studios. During the past few years, I studied Footwear Design and Making in London, UK. Moving back to tropical Singapore, I worked with a maker space and started running my own company, taking on customisation orders for small leather products and making more footwear (shoe) for customers and running experiences (workshops). I enjoy forming new ideas by combining traditional and modern techniques and creating new products for short workshops such as making espadrilles (plus more products coming up!). Plus, I like conversing with participants, bouncing ideas.

Det er vanskelig å få plass på denne opplevelsen.

Her skal du være

The venue is opposite a synagogue, a brand new property.

If you feel it will be difficult to navigate to the venue, I am willing to meet you at any of the MRT stations (Dhoby Ghaut station or Fort Canning station). Let me know the day before the experience.

9歳の子どもと参加しましたがリサさんはとても親切でいろいろ手伝ってくれたり丁寧に教えてくれたので、子どもたちも一緒に素敵なサンダルを作り上げることができました。シンガポールの名所や旅行の話なども聞けてとても楽しい時間でした。Lisaさんは日本語が少し話せるので英語があまり得意でなくても大丈夫です。オススメのアクティビティです!

Lisa is very friendly and has lots of amazing stories to share about herself! She was very patient and clear in her instructions, and making the pair of shoes was very manageable with her guidance. Overall a very pleasant experience. Thanks Lisa!

Such a great workshop! Both my friend and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Lisa is very patient and had a lot of stories to tell while we work on our own project. If you haven’t done anything like that. You should totally try to make your own espadrilles!

Lisa was really patient and encouraging. The espradille sandals is definitely make-able even for beginners with no experience under Lisa’s clear guidance throughout the workshop. If your idea of fun involves making something from scratch for yourself or a loved one, I highly recommend you to join this workshop!

Time well spent learning what is involved in shoe making as well as a little history about what you are doing. Best thing of all is the fantastic new shoes you go home with. Lisa is a wonderful host, making you feel right at home during the class. Would do it again. Have my eye on some other styles. Thanks Lisa.

Wow!! This is a must-do in Singapore. I was there with a friend for 6 days. This was the most personal, unique, and fun AirBnb experience I could imagine. Lisa was so kind, helpful, and made sure we all left with a perfect pair of new shoes. Well worth the price of the class because I would’ve bought a similar pair for double the price of the class. 10/10 recommend. Would do it again if I return to Singapore. Provided amazing cookies and tea, and even helped us arrange a taxi home. Can’t say enough great things.
