With Catherine Carter
Run during the school holidays this is a full day, creative workshop for budding sewers! Kids and teens 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, but they must bring their own fabrics for their projects. A range of materials can be provided for a small additional fee. Please pack a healthy lunch, snacks and drink for the day.
Please note, your child needs to have recent sewing machine experience if they wish to use a sewing machine. They should be of at least beginner level, and able to set up and operate a sewing machine independently. If your child is keen to learn how to sew they can attend our 2 day, Kids & Teens Introduction to Sewing Course.
