About This Class

Class Schedule

  • Held over two consecutive days.
  • From 10am to 3pm each day.

What You Will Learn

  • Using a sewing machine and tools - like scissors
  • Basic sewing techniques and following instructions
  • Making a zippered case and sling bag

What You Get

  • A handmade sling bag


This 2 day workshop starts right at the very beginning, with students learning how to use a sewing machine and cut out fabric. We spend lots of time teaching them to thread their own machines and start to troubleshoot stitching problems.  Everyone starts out on a template, makes a handy zippered case and then we make a sling bag.

The course is designed for children aged nine years and up. If your child under nine is super keen to be involved, a parent/guardian must accompany and assist them throughout the two days. 

Skill Level: I’ve Never Done This Before!

This is for an absolute beginner.
