6 Week Sewing Course - machine provided in class

6 Week Sewing Course - machine provided in class

PLEASE NOTE: Children must be 8 years old and over to participate!

The aim of Rosie’s Sewing School is to teach children with no experience of sewing the basics of machine and hand sewing, the terms used in sewing and design, and to build confidence in working at home.

The classes aim to encourage working with already used fabrics, second hand or damaged items which can be made into something new, or simply repaired. Environmental impact is a key foundation for the class, teaching how to reduce waste by reusing fabrics to create something else or repairing items to give them longer life.

Sewing is a skill for life, once you learn the basics you will have abilities to help you with numerous projects.
