Kid’s Beginner Sewing Course Tuesdays


A creative, term- long course for girls and boys who want to learn to sew.

Over ten 1.5 hr classes, your child will learn the basics of how to use a sewing machine. They will practice and build their skills as the term progresses, sewing a range of different items including a novelty cushion cover, pin cushion, a tote bag and pyjama pants. We will also teach some hand sewing skills.

Children may bring their own sewing machine or use one of ours (see what to bring below). We have safe drop off right outside our door inside the Hyde Business Park. Our kid’s classes are capped at 5 students.

Skill level: This course is pitched at absolute beginner children aged 8 – 12. No knowledge is assumed. Suitable for girls and boys eight years and older.
