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!
