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 hearts and birds. 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. and encourages focus and concentration. Plus it gives them a huge sense of achievement and self-worth.  It also stimulates a child’s imagination and creativity.

What will my child learn?
We’ll be learning some common hand embroidery stitches
using felt  to make a stuffed hearts or birds and decorating them with buttons.

Course arrangements
All fabrics and equipment provided.
