Sew Young – sewing for young people age 10+
Most 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.
