What people are saying about Barcelona

It was super fun and I'm glad I did this course. You were well instructed in the technique and at the beginning you also received interesting information about the historical background of the laying of the mosaic. The price may seem a bit high at first glance, but it's totally fine given the material and tools provided, as well as the personal support (course support is provided in Spanish, German, English, and French). If you have time and would like to create something of your own, you should treat yourself to this experience of laying your own mosaic.

This was so much more than a shoe crafting class. The storytelling, the party vibe, the shoes, the food, everything was amazing. The staff was also really patient and helpful, they made a very complex thing to be approachable! besides, the were soooo lovely and energetic. Lots of laughs and even dancing! What a truly unforgettable experience, I left knowing more about Catalunya, espadrilles and with a really comfy and unique pair of shoes. 100% recommended!

They did an amazing job of educating and creating our own personalized espadrilles, all while setting the tone of a fun and energetic environment. They are also very good at answering questions by emails in a very timely manner. I recommend them 100%!

It was a very fun experience; our mosaics look so cool on the wall now. Highly recommended.

I had a lot of fun creating my own mosaic. Thanks for the support :)
