Day Sewing class project for Kids and Teens Age 9-15

This class is designed for kids and  teens  from age 9-15. It will  run from 10am-3.30pm and include lunch * . We will be doing a project over the sessions and teaching the kids/teens  sewing machine skills, some pattern making and some hand sewing.

They will complete a project from start to finish with our supervision. This could be a tote bag, a skirt, a pair of shorts or upcycling a pair of jeans or other garment.
