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

(If you have your own machine, please bring it on DAY TWO ONLY) 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 triangular pin cushion!

DAY TWO:

- We will make a tote bag, complete with french seams on the inside. 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 medium weight fabric for a tote bag if you have a favourite fabric you would like to use.
