Our sewing classes for kids have been well attended over the years. It has become clear that there is a group of families who value the useful skill of sewing, and kids who enjoy the creative and uplifting atmosphere available here.
We have a beautiful teaching space equipped with some sewing machines and overlockers. You are welcome to bring your own machine, but we have machines available if required.
Our beginner classes are for kids who are at least 8 years old. We run 8 week courses during the school term. In these sessions we aim to finish a project every 1 or two weeks. These projects are enjoyable and are items the kids can use or that they would enjoy wearing. We provide fabric for all the projects.
Our intermediate classes are for kids who are at least 10 years old. We expect these children to be able to sew already, can also thread the machines themselves and wind up a bobbin on their own. They have usually already had at least 3 terms of beginner sewing classes with us.
In these classes we work on longer projects which can take up to 3 sessions. These projects do need a greater degree of accuracy and attention to detail. We provide the fabric for these classes too.
Term 3 classes start Monday 25 July
