It may seem like half term has only just finished, but the Easter holidays are drawing ever closer – in just over three week’s time, they’ll be off for another two and a bit weeks, meaning you had better come up with some ways of staving off the boredom without simply relying on the electrical babysitters (iPad, Xbox, phone etc) every day. Don’t let them stay glued to the telly all day – get them inspired with some craft! Or, if you have a seriously crafty child on your hands and if you’re already panicking about how you will come up with enough ideas to keep them entertained, then we have the answer – a whole week of sewing workshops for them to get stuck into.
Make a Rabbit – £20.00, 8+
11am – 12pm Monday 10th April 2017
Kick off Easter week with a fabulous rabbit making class! Sew up your very own Easter Rabbit in a choice of spring themed fabrics, adding a tummy and maybe a fluffy tail if you want. A great class for kids with a passion for sewing and making gifts.
Sew a Drawstring Bag – £20.00, 8+
Tuesday 11th April 2017
Create a drawstring bag to keep your swimming stuff or PE kit in, or maybe to use for sleepovers, as it’s the perfect size for a pair pyjamas and a washbag. Choose from our ever-widening selection of cool and creative fabrics to sew something both pretty and practical. This class is only really suitable if you have used a sewing machine before – if you’re in doubt, please speak to Clair or Charlotte at the shop before booking.
Make an Easter Applique Cushion – £20.00, 8+
11am – 12pm Wednesday 12th April 2017
Create a simple but effective Easter Rabbit themed cushion in this kids’ holiday class. Choose your rabbit fabric, learn how to sew applique style, and then turn your design in a fabulous envelope cushion cover! Excellent for those new to machine sewing and children who have a little more experience.
Sew a Simple Kids’ Skirt – £20.00, 8+
11am – 12.30pm Thursday 13th April 2017
Learn how to sew your very first garment in this simple skirt class for kids. Choose from any of our funky prints or go for a pretty spring floral to wear over your Easter holidays. This is a great chance for children who have had some experience sewing with a machine to advance their skills and make something personal to them.
Decorate an Easter Egg Hunt Bag – £10.00, 4+
11am – 1pm Good Friday 14th April 2017
Cut out fabric designs, create pompoms, use your imagination to create a fantastic, colourful bag to keep all your eggs in when you go hunting on Easter Sunday! Suitable for little ones aged four and up, this is a drop in session running for two hours on Good Friday, however places still need to be booked so we know how many children are going to attend.
All kid’s Easter classes run from Monday 9th to Friday 14th April 2017; times vary; all classes must be booked beforehand, with either a 50% deposit or by paying the full class fee; all fabrics and materials are included in the price of the class.
