SEWING CLASSES FOR CHILDREN

I run a couple of sewing classes for children depending on their age.  

SEW YOUNG 13+

TEENAGERS

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

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

As this class is booked per term, Current Students will be offered places first. If there are no places available I can put your name on the waiting list.

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.

PLEASE HAVE A LOOK AT THE BOOKINGS PAGE FOR DATES.

SEW YOUNG DAY 13+

TEENAGERS ONLY

£60.00   EASTER/SUMMER HOLIDAYS  9am – 6pm 

 
Sometimes I run SEW YOUNG DAY’s during the Easter and the Summer holidays.
 
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, however it’s impossible for me to guarantee that your child will get the garment completely finished in a day.  
I will provide sewing machines, thread and pattern cutting equipment.  You will need to supply a pattern, enough fabric and a packed lunch.  
 

PLEASE LET ME KNOW IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN THIS CLASS.

SEW YOUNG 8+ 

FASHION SEW CLUB

£15.00 per session

Once a month I run a mini dress making 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.

Any regular students will be offered places first.  The way it works is that each month I invite my regular students to book and if a regular student can’t make it one month, I offer their place on that session to those on the waiting list.  When a permanent place becomes available I email those who are still keen to join. Once your child has a regular place she/he will be invited back each month. 

Children who come every month soon pick up the essential techniques needed for mini dress making 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.

After a student has been coming for some time and is confident with the whole process, they will be offered the opportunity to use a sewing machine. However,  sewing machines can only be used if I feel it is safe and the student is ready to be moved on.   

 

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.   

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