What you'll do

Looking for an unique and high-quality souvenir? We will customize a pair of Espigas - the espadrilles made in Marseille - into your style!

You will be welcomed at the Espigas boutique, a made in Marseille espadrilles store, in a relaxed, trendy and family-friendly atmosphere.

(Covid-19 responsability requires, we will have hydroalcoholic gel available and all the equipment will have been cleaned before your arrival. Airbnb invites us all to wear a mask during our artistic experience. In complete safety, we will have a good time together!)

You will be invited to choose the pair of espadrilles you will paint on and once the shoe has been chosen, it's time to get our brushes dirty!

If you have a drawing idea in mind, it's great, we'll try to make it happen. If you are looking for designs, I have a small catalog of drawings for suggestion, or we can discuss themes based on your hobbies and taste - and level of painting. No previous experience is necessary but it will be up to you to fulfill your art project! I'll be there all along for lots of technical and artistic advice ... and a little brushstroke if needed!

The goal of our workshop is that you leave Espigas happy with the time spent with us and proud of the work accomplished.

You will leave with a high quality product that is truly unique in the world!
Other things to note
You'll be choosing your espadrilles directly where the atelier will take place.
The choice of shoes will be limited to 1 of 2 specific models, the espadrilles and one with laces.
As they are a local brand production is not huge, they might not have a specific color to a specific model and size.

Hello aspiring artists visiting Marseille!

I'm a Brazilian painter living in Marseille for many years. I've graduated in Fine Arts at a large University in Brazil, experienced one year in college in the US and another one in France.

My passions are art, travelling and meeting new people, so a painting atelier with travelers is so...oh, la la...so perfect!

No previous painting experience is needed at all, just come have a good time and you'll be proud of the artistic souvenir you're taking home.
I have a large experience with painting and with painting ateliers.. I like to give the participants freedom of creation along with tips on how to make the most of our class. Many themes are available, so come and let the artistic French Provence airs inspire you!

Nous avons adorées cette expérience ! Nous sommes reparties avec des espadrilles uniques. Cris a su nous guider pour réaliser nos envies et s'est montrée très pédagogue, patience et attentionnée à notre égard. Je recommande
