After School Sewing Class

For boys and girls aged 8-16

This is a fun small group after school class that teaches your child or teen the art of sewing. They will learn both hand sewing and machine sewing and make lots of fun and practical items to use, display and wear.

Our aim is to foster creativity and joy in creating rather than buying, and in building confidence through a sense of achievement of having made something with one's own two hands, sometimes with great patience and perseverance.

Examples of projects we cover over the different terms include sewing helps such as a pin cushion, clothes (such as skirts, tops, pajama pants, etc) for themselves and things for their room such as cushions, a tote bag, items for school such as a pencil case, shoe bag, snack pouch and lunch bag, as well as toys such as teddies and doll clothes for the pre-teens and make up bags, handbags and help with HSC major textile work for older teens. We will provide age appropriate projects for both girls or boys, and can teach any level, from absolute beginners to advanced.

They can let their creativity run wild with embellishments to make their item uniquely theirs, or personalize their project by appliqueing their names.

Imagine the proud look on your child's face when they come home wearing a new item of clothing they made themselves, or show off their finished project to their friends.
