With Catherine Carter
Run in conjunction with school holidays, this 2 class course over 2 days is the perfect introduction to the sewing machine for a young and budding sewer!
They will learn all the basics and get lots of sewing practice to build their confidence. This course covers learning about all the parts and features of a sewing machine, how to set up the machine, using different stitches and how to solve common sewing machine problems. Class sizes are kept small, for the best learning experience and a relaxed atmosphere – no more than 5 students in class!
The course fee includes all materials and a Sewer’s Starter Kit valued at RRP$15.00, made up of a sewing kit with scissors, thread clippers, pins, pin cushion, tape measure, hand sewing needles and black thread.
They will get to stitch up a drawstring bag to keep all sewing sewing tools. Sewing techniques that will be covered include hemming, finishing raw edges and cutting fabric, to create the final sewing project – a simple tote bag!
This workshop is eligible for the Creative Kids Voucher, we are a registered Provider.
