Sew Young – sewing for young people age 10+

Anna TopMost children love creating new things! My experience of working in schools has shown me that sewing is not just for girls! Both boys and girls can come and learn or improve the skill of using a sewing machine and take something creative home with them. Some children may want to sew but haven’t had the time in school to hone their skills. They can come and practice in a small group setting with good instruction. Or parents may just want to keep their children busy during the long school holidays!

Classes will have a maximum of 5 children.



 Wednesdays 4.15-6.15 pm. £20 per session. £108 for 6 sessions booked together.

Workshops for ages 11+. Fashion focus will teach young people to design and make their own clothing and accessories in a fun, relaxed environment.  They will learn how to use a sewing machine,  do fashion illustration, look at how to adapt designs and make new clothes from old .

Children can choose from a variety of patterns to make skirts, simple tops, bags, hats, pyjamas etc.

Your own fabric and pattern must be purchased for these sessions.  More instructions will be given on booking the workshops




These classes are ideal for children who want to learn how to sew.  They will learn lots of basic skills and gain the confidence to make lots of creative things for themselves or other people
