The Kids Club runs from Monday 3rd April to Friday 7th April 2017, for two hours everyday from 10.00am to 12.00pm. Learn how to make a fully lined elasticated skirt and matching purse bag in contrasting materials at this Easter Workshop Week. The course will include taking body measurements, cutting fabric, pinning, tacking, using a sewing machine, hand sewing and hemming. You will then be able to decorate your items using your own design ideas. In order to be able to complete the project your child will need to attend every day.
This course is suitable for children aged 8 to 12 years who have a basic understanding of hand sewing.
