Whether you're a complete beginner or have learnt some sewing machine basics, this sewing workshop is guaranteed to be a fun & creative experience!

This Beginner Workshop runs for 2 consecutive days and is available each week during the January School Holidays 2021. It is a small specialised class and limited to 4 places per workshop (ratio of 1:2 supervision).

Hours are 9.30am - 3pm each day, with a break for morning tea and lunch. Location is Studio D, 12 Denawen Ave, Castle Cove, NSW. 

It is a combination of machine and (some) hand sewing. Details as follows:

DAY ONE:

- Setting up the sewing machine - we have sewing machines available however it is great if you bring your own to gain confidence using it during the class, which can then be continued. It’s also fine to use this as an opportunity to see if it’s a craft to be pursued further before you purchase a machine.

- Basic sewing stitches - straight and zig zag

- Cutting fabrics (woven)

- Sewing basic shapes 

- How to make scrunchies & basic softies including a chicken pin cushion!

DAY TWO:

- We will make a lined tote bag. Starting by cutting out, sewing the straps, sides and finishing till complete.

Depending on time we may fit in another small project. 

Please bring your own lunch, snacks (no nuts please) and water bottle.

NB - There are no stores to purchase food in the arcade of studios at Denawen Avenue, Castle Cove.

All materials are provided though you are welcome to bring 1 metre of woven fabric for a tote bag if you have a favourite fabric you would like to use.

Places are only guaranteed once payment has been made. PLEASE ENSURE BOTH EMAIL AND MOBILE NUMBER ARE PROVIDED IN YOUR TRANSACTION. Please add your child’s name and age in order comments.
