Running for 3 years, the Sewing School is designed to engage all children through a journey of creativity and sewing skills for life. 


Our Sewing School classes are run by professional teachers to provide term time & school holiday activities within a safe, supportive and fun environment. 


Sewing classes for JUNIORS (6y - 11y) and TEENS (11y+)


During each 6 week term a level will be completed, following the relevant stitches, skills and projects for that Level. Students are invited to re-enrol every 6 weeks so that they may return to complete each subsequent level. 


Juniors will learn lots of sewing skills, first by hand then on our real  sewing machines and will make loads of fun projects, from cushions and bags to rag dolls, aprons and many more!


Teens courses cover fashion skills and customising garments & clothing, design, funky accessories, bags, make-up cases, cushions!
