With Catherine Carter
Run during the school holidays, this is 2 full days of sewing for budding sewers! This workshop is suitable for complete beginners or those that already know how to sew from 9 years old and up.
For the complete beginners, they will learn all the basics like how to set up a sewing machine, learn some sewing techniques and make a simple tote bag. For kids and teens that already have sewing experience, they bring along their own sewing projects to spend the whole day making, designing and creating. Whether they are hand sewing or using a sewing machine, they will have an experienced Teacher available to guide and inspire them. We have lots of ideas for projects they can start on the day like making softie toys, cushions, bags, upcycling clothing or sewing clothing. High school and HSC students are also welcome if they would like help from an experienced Teacher.
We have basic tools and thread in our workshop for the kids to use. For complete beginners all fabric is supplied. For those bringing their own projects, they must bring their own fabrics, accessories and patterns for their projects. Our workshop in equipped with Janome sewing machines, model MW3018 (mechanical), and overlockers. Or you are welcome to bring your own sewing machine.
Please pack a healthy lunch, snacks and drink for the day.
