Sewing Classes for Children

We teach children of all ages and abilities here at the workshop, and have a weekly program of classes as well as holiday workshops all year round. The classes are self directed, with each child making their own project. We explore all aspects of sewing from garment making and following commercial patterns to how to make their own, even textile printing and painting.. accessory making or cushions.. toys or waistcoats (even waistcoats for their toys)….you name it, we’ve made it … bags for school or piano music .. pencil cases and summer dresses, school uniform (yes!) and booties for your baby sister – no problem, and even a skirt for Mum. There is a maximum of six children per class and two adults teaching. So there is lots of individual attention for each child.

1440543783053 In our group for older students (11 – 16yrs)  we explore all aspects of fashion design. First of all following commercial dressmaking patterns, then copying from your favorite garment… Making basic pattern blocks and adapting to design, how to mix up patterns (pattern hacking), draping on the stand…and upcycling clothing … we delve into fashion history and chat about current designers, exhibitions and trends. Again, the class is self directed, the children have passion for what they are making, they have access to the library of books and patterns here, so are never short of inspiration.

Maximum 5 spaces with one adult teaching.
