Weekly Sewing Class


These after school course will run fortnightly in blocks of six sessions and are available for children and teenagers ( ages 11+, ) on a Monday evening.

Classes run for 1.5 - 2 hours depending on age and experience.  Groups will be organised into groups by age and experience (however no experience is necessary!) 

Class sizes will be kept small, with no more than 5 children attending each class, so that I can work closely with them. 

Price will be £20 per session (for two hour sessions every other week - teenagers group) or £15 (for 1.5 hour class fortnightly - younger class) and can be paid termly (6 sessions per term). Lessons will teach progressive skills each week.   

The course will cover operating a sewing machine safely, cutting fabrics and patterns safely, and will give students an introduction to a number of skills.

The course content may vary but will include some or all of the following (please note, this will be dependent on speed of work and confidence of the students. It is important they are comfortable with each technique/lesson before moving on to the next project):

- sewing safely, operating a sewing machine, practise stitching and techniques session. 

- making a pin cushion for use on the remainder of the course

- making a envelope cushion

- making a washbag or similar
