What we provide:

The use of new and fully serviced Janome 725s sewing machines, scissors, tools and threads etc. Students can use free donated fabrics as part of our Circularity Bank or bring in their own.

What to expect:

We believe in giving substance and sustainability awareness to each sewing project by encouraging open and enquiring creative minds in a structured environment. Each week we will give the children another aspect of fashion experience through an activity to give a solid base to their new found skill set fashion awareness.

We will be working on sewing skills to improve the children’s technical ability, which will then be incorporated into personal projects.

Drawing fashion ideas
Draping fabrics on a mannequin stand to create designs
Pinning and cutting fabrics
Sustainability awareness
New sewing techniques
