After School Sewing Club - Winter Term Tuesdays - Dressmaking


Our dressmaking classes are designed for kids who have mastered sewing machine basics and are interested in learning to sew clothes. Each term we'll focus on a different project or projects that will help kids learn how to construct garments, including working with a sewing pattern, cutting fabric, taking measurements and construction techniques. 

Students should be age 10+ to take this class. Students in our beginner class must be invited to advance to the dressmaking class. If you have any questions about which class is right for your child, please get in touch!

A snack (juice and a biscuit) will be provided but you're welcome to send your child with his/her own snack. Please let us know if your child has any food allergies.

Please complete our Kids Class Enrolment Form when booking a class for your child & enter your child's name and age in the notes when you check out.
