Kids Sewing - Bunting

Friday 19 April
10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Bunting is an easy sewing project for children. It’s fun to do and is an ideal first sewing project once they’ve learned how to use a sewing machine. Bunting makes a lovely decoration so children can personalise their bedrooms.

Who is this aimed at?
Children aged 8-12 years old. Children must have already taken the Kids Introductory sewing class

What will my child learn?
How to mark and cut fabric
how to sew around the edges to make the flags
positioning flags evenly on the tape
attaching flags to tape
Sewing is an ideal creative activity for children. It develops their manual dexterity, hand/eye co-ordination, and encourages focus and concentration. Plus it gives them a huge sense of achievement and self-worth.

Course arrangements
All equipment and materials are provided, including sewing machines. In all the childrens’ sewing classes, numbers are limited so each child receive lots of attention and can be carefully supervised.

Children must be able to place their feet flat on the floor when sitting in a chair that’s 45cm off the floor. If they cannot, then they will not be able to operate the sewing machine safely and for their own safety, will not be able to take the class.

Limited places available. Must be pre-booked at: https://www.artisanstitch.co.uk/bunting/

Kids Hand Embroidery

Friday 19 April
1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Hand Embroidery is a lovely creative activity for children to learn. In this sewing class for ages 8-12, we’ll be making a felt heart keychain. This is a lovely school holiday activity for children.

I learned to sew as a very young child. My earliest memories involve playing with fabric scraps. Sewing develops manual dexterity and excellent hand/eye coordination. It also stimulates a child’s imagination and creativity.

What will my child learn?
We’ll be learning some common hand embroidery stitches
combining felt and other fabrics to make a heart-shaped key chain charm.
decorating it with ribbons and buttons
