Teacher: Jen Skedd
Suitable for: children aged 8-12. Sewing experience required

Price: £22

This Paper Collage Book cover is a cross-over between an art and a sewing class to introduce children to mixed media textiles.

This is an ideal class for children between 8 and 12 years and encourages upcycling of paper for new uses.

What’s involved?

  • how to upcycle newspapers and magazines that would normally be thrown away
  • using paint to add a personal colour palette
  • stitching the paper collage to add texture and interest
  • making into a book cover, a phone or tablet case.

All materials are provided.  The child should bring a book about A5 or A6 size – this can be a notebook, a novel, a school text book or jotter. Children should already be able to use a sewing machine confidently.  If they can’t, then they can take my Kids Introductory sewing class.

This class must be pre-booked at: https// For information or enquiries, contact or 0773 939 7369
