Sew Young

CLASSES FOR CHILDREN

I run various classes for children depending on their age. The number of classes I can run is limited because I also enjoy being a very busy mum with two gorgeous children who I want to spend lots of time with!

SEW YOUNG 13+

£90 – £105.00 per term (6 – 7 classes)

This class runs every other week on a Saturday morning from 10.30am till 12.30pm.

Current Students will be offered places first.

Once your child has learnt to control a sewing machine and has mastered a few basic techniques, she/he can join in with the rest of the group and work on projects chosen to build on techniques and gain confidence. As this is a group of teenagers, most of these projects are fashion related.

This class is fantastic if your child loves textiles or fashion and is thinking about taking it further. A couple of previous students who were with me from the age of 13 years went on to study fashion at university.

Sewing machines and equipment are provided but you will be expected to buy your own fabric for projects.  Advice will always be given on what fabric to buy and how much you will need.

SEW YOUNG DAY 13+

£60.00   EASTER/SUMMER HOLIDAYS  9am – 6pm 

I’m planing to run a couple of SEW YOUNG DAY’s during the Easter and the Summer holidays. SEW YOUNG 13+ is a popular class and there are often no places available. Hopefully this will give some the opportunity to attend my classes in a different way.  
 
If your child is a beginner or quite new to using a sewing machine, the first time she/he comes will be spent building confidence on the sewing machine and learning all the basic techniques needed to make a simple garment. All being well, they should get the chance to make something small, such as a simple bag or pencil case. 
I will provide everything they need, including the sewing machines. All they will need to bring is a packed lunch.  
 
If your child can already thread up and use a sewing machine WITH CONFIDENCE, she/he can chose a pattern from my list, to cut out and make up with my guidance.  The patterns have been carefully chosen based on our timescale. It is however, impossible for me to guarantee that your child will get the garment completely finished.  
I will provide sewing machines, thread and pattern cutting equipment.  You will need to supply a pattern, enough fabric and a packed lunch.

Sew School London

SEW YOUNG 8+

£15.00 per session

Once a month I run  hand sewing Fashion Club for children aged eight years old and above.  It  always takes place on a Saturday afternoon  from 3pm till 5pm.  This is not a sewing machine class.

Current Students will be offered places first.

Children who come every month will soon pick up all the essential techniques needed for mini dressmaking and then with a creative mind and my guidance, the possibilities are endless. In this class all the mini clothes will be sewn by hand using a simple running or back stitch. It would be brilliant if your child already knows these stitches, can thread a needle and tie a knot as they will be able to go straight on to making mini clothes, but if not, don’t worry, they will be taught all these skills in their first session.

The children will be encouraged to work on their own project so even though they will all be sewing together and learning the same techniques, they may well be making different things. Hopefully this will be inspiring for them. 

Once a student is accomplished and has been coming for some time, they may get the opportunity to use a sewing machine. However, as this class is for a younger age group, the sewing machines will only be allowed if I feel it is safe.

Please note As this is a group class, it’s not possible for me to give individual attention to all of the children all of the time.  I think it is important to be aware that whatever their level, the children will have to wait their turn.  I will try to make sure the children choose something within their capability, and will do all I can to help, but unfortunately I can’t guarantee they will completely finish what they are making within the two hours.  Hopefully they will get to a stage where they are able to finish off at home…I hope this all seems fair and makes sense! 

Please feel free to email me if you have any questions.
