Let’s start sewing sustainable clothes on a machine and drawing some great ideas from your imagination! Make friends whilst learning something new in a cosy and friendly environment. Great for beginners.

What we provide:

The use of new and fully serviced Janome 725s sewing machines, scissors, tools and threads etc. We will also be providing all fabrics during the autumn term, which is included in the cost.

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 in structured group projects to improve the children’s technical ability for the first 6 weeks until everyone is settled.

All tutors will wear a mask and keep a distance wherever possible.

Activities include:
Learning to sew on a machine
Drawing fashion ideas
Draping fabrics on a mannequin stand to create designs
Pinning and cutting fabrics
Sustainability awareness
New sewing techniques
Making own garment

At the end of term they will come home with:
Design sheets, sustainable fabric awareness and technical sewing samples
A simple completed garment designed and made by them
Certificate of completion

Sustainable design awareness
