4:30 pm - 6:00 pm
Suitable for: Improvers - (some previous experience is preferred)
This Kids Sewing Course level 1 will teach your child foundation sewing skills. And they will make some easy sewing projects. Ideally your child will have completed my 2-hour introductory sewing class to learn how to use a sewing machine.
At age 8-12, children have the mental capacity to learn the basic concepts and sufficient manual dexterity to operate a sewing machine. It’s actually the perfect age at which to learn. Sewing is an ideal creative activity for children. It develops their manual dexterity, hand/eye co-ordination, and encourages focus and concentration. Completing a sewing project from start to finish fosters a sense of accomplishment that can boost a child’s morale and self-confidence. And it’s really great fun! Plus it gives them a huge sense of achievement and self-worth.
Because they’re having such a great time, they don’t actually realise how many valuable sewing skills they are learning which will stay with them for life.
Who is this aimed at?
Improvers aged 8-12 years. (Younger children will be considered). They must be able to reach the floor when sitting at a table 74cm in height (approx standard desk height)
