    SEW KIDS CLUB - afterschool kids classes!

    Let's really get sewing! No matter what stage your child is at, this after school kids club will kickstart their creativity.

    With the sewing machine provided, we will show your child how to thread it and practise stitches. Then, once armed with the confidence to use the machine, this workshop will build on skills each week.

    If your child is an absolute beginner, we will take it slow and begin with sewing simple pieces such as pencil cases, scrunchies and work up to a simple garment. If your child has sewn before, or taken this class before, we can keep increasing skills week on week.

    The skills learnt in this class will include threading and working a sewing machine, making seams, zig zag edging, top stitching and hand sewing buttons and hems.


    Skill Level: Complete beginner to confident sewist, between 12 and 17yrs.

    What will you get?

    • Expert tuition with one teacher and 5-6 kids - min 5 students to go ahead.
    • Sewing Pattern with instructions to take home
