Introduction to Sewing - Level 1

Classes designed for our youngest students (5-6 years of age). These are multi-activity classes where students explore a wide range of sewing based skills and techniques. Key foundational sewing techniques are introduced through play and the classes focus on building students confidence, social, hand-eye
coordination and dexterity as well as fine motor skills. Plastic sewing needles are used gradually moving onto real needles. 

Introduction to Sewing - Level 2

From 7-11 years. At level 2 students continue to build on their hand sewing skills as well as being guided in operating a sewing machine. Students will work on mastering how to thread a needle, tie knots as well as basic hand stitching types such as running stitch, whip stitch, chain stitch, blanket stitch and embroidery. Creative projects are fun and functional encouraging students to hone in on improving their skillset.

Introduction to Sewing - Level 3

 At level 3, there is a stronger focus on learning the operations of the sewing machine. Learnings introduce students to the foundations of setting up the machine, winding the bobbin and changing the needle. This is needed to develop confidence and become independent in troubleshooting during projects. Working with larger pieces of fabrics students will advance skills by learning how to insert zips, make buttonholes and waistband casings. 

Mini Stitches

Our dressmaking for kids 'Mini Stitches' follows the design principles of construction. Students take part in fitting sessions taking accurate body measurements, understanding size charts, cutting patterns, reading pattern markings and sewing. A highly technical class which teaches work ethic, perseverance, dedication, motivation, focus, patience and pride.

Run as a Saturday Club this programme introduces young people to the creative skills & opportunities involved in fashion. From sketching, styling & sewing students will develop practical and technical skills as well as key transferable skills, such as creative problem-solving and confidence.
