April Holiday Classes for Kids!
|Our April holiday schedule is fully packed with creative classes for kids! Each day we offer a fibre craft or art class in the morning and a sewing machine class in the afternoon for kids 8+ (or very keen 7!) Pick and choose what they are interested in, or send them with a packed lunch for full days.
For all our sewing projects, your child will learn how to sew with a computerised sewing machine, gain an understanding of sewing basics and practice construction techniques. They'll also learn how safely use essential sewing tools such as a measuring tape, pins, scissors and an iron. For the art & fibre crafts, we will focus on encouraging your kids' creativity, self-confidence and fine motor skills. These classes are a great way of making new friends, learning new skills & getting inspired. Here is the menu for April!
The project for this class is paper flower crowns! A super fun class for spring and a great accessory for selfies! Using different paper shaping techniques, your child will create flowers and turn them into a wonderful hair crown!
This little pouch is perfect for taking on school trips or keeping those secret items safe! They'll be made using laminated fabric. This fabric has a base made from 100% organic cotton with a PU coating making it great for this project. Your child will even learn how to sew with zips!
The comeback of the year, the Dreamcatcher! They are SUPER pretty and SO fun. Whether your child wants to hang them above their bed or make them as a gift, you can get really creative! In this class, we will have a variety of elements they can add such as beads, pom poms & felt shapes, to really make the dreamcatcher their own.
Punch Needle has made a massive return to the needlework world. Its simple, easy and a great make to see instant results. This class is very similar to the Embroidery class, as they'll get to draw up their own design to needle punch to turn into a wall hanging! We will have a great choice of yarn to choose from, and all materials are included.
We think that the square cushion needs a change up. Squares are cool, but when it comes to the perfect pillow, the shape just doesn’t always cut it. So, how about a dog balloon cushion? Yep, a pillow in the shape of a dog! This may look tricky, but it's actually genius! We won't give away how the shape is formed, but it's definitely fun.
Now Spring is here, it's the best time to get gardening and planting seeds. In this class, we'll be giving the average plant pot a pretty lift with different designs to upgrade the family garden or plant shelf!
This class will get your child learning how to make flowers from felt, use a needle & thread to make glorious shapes and go home with a beautiful wall decoration, just in time for the Spring inspired season!
Made in the fabric of your childs choice, they will sew together this awesome bum-bag (aka fanny pack!) Bum-Bags are very on trend and the hottest bags to be wearing this summer! So, what better than your child making one themselves?
