1 Day School Holiday Sewing Course



Description

Whether you are a beginner or advanced sewing enthusiast, a boy or a girl, you will love our one day sewing courses these school holidays.

Beginners are learning all the essentials of how to thread and use a sewing machine, and then move on to cutting out and sewing their own tote bag (after the bag they can chose their next follow on project for any subsequent classes. Bring in your own machine (we show you how to use it) or use one of ours at no extra charge.

For continuing, intermediate and advanced students, bring in a project you are currently working on and need help with, or email us prior for some suggestions. This is a perfect time to learn to read a sewing pattern, pick up some nifty sewing techniques and tricks of the trade. HSC students will love help with their textile projects. 

Our teachers are friendly, fun and trained in fashion design. We aim to create a relaxed atmosphere and a safe learning environment where your son or daughter can learn exciting new skills while having a great time. We have yet to have someone attend our classes who didn't love it. 

This course goes over one day from 10am to 3pm. We provide fresh filtered water to our students but please remember to pack a sandwich and a couple of healthy snacks to keep up their energy throughout the day. 

Ages: from 9-17

Also, if you have a group of a minimum of 5 friends, we may be able to organize a class at a different time/date just for you and your friends.

With any questions, please send us a quick email via our website www.makeandlearn.com.au  or give us a call on 0410 510 828.

If you don't already have a sewing kit, we have some for sale for only $10 each. Each kit inlcudes: a spool of thread, a Janome plastic bobbin (can be swapped for an additional spool of thread if desired), an unpicker, a wheel of pins, a thread clipper and a tape measure.

Cancelation & Refund Policy

Cancellation policy

To ensure that every student receives plenty of attention and opportunities to ask questions during the class, we make it a priority to keep our class sizes small. Classes also require a minimum number of students to run.

For that reason, your enrollment in the class is final and cancellations will forfeit the full fee However, you can also transfer your place at that class to a friend or family member at no extra cost, just let us know.

So please double check your availability before making a booking as there will be no exceptions. If you do know in advance that you may be unavailable for a specific day of the class, please contact us prior to discuss. We may be able to accommodate you in an alternate class to make up for the missed class (this option is only available if confirmed at the time of booking.)

Missed Classes

We run small group classes, most of them sized between four to six students only. This means that our classes are usually fully booked. With prior arrangement (upon booking a class), we may be able to offer a make-up class at the teacher's discretion, given there is a space available in a parallel class.

However, we regret we do not offer make-up classes for missed classes in general, due to the small class size mentioned. If we did, we would have to change our business model to larger size groups, or significantly increase our prices to accommodate the extra students.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us to discuss.
