4:30 pm - 6:00 pm
Suitable for: Children aged 8-12. Introductory level
The Kids Sewing Course will teach your child how to use a sewing machine. They will learn lots of foundation sewing and make some fun easy sewing projects.
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.
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.
This course is run during school holidays as a 5-day course comprising 2-hours per day. There is also a term-time after-school version of 1.5 hour sessions over 6 weeks. Please check the individual event at point of booking for details.
