Bunting is an endlessly popular sewing project for children. With lots of seams to be sewn, it’s a brilliant way to introduce your child to a sewing machine, setting them up for a lifetime of confident crafting. Kids love being let loose on our fabric collection, and learning how to sew bunting they can’t wait to show off. And we love it when we receive photos of their bunting hanging in bedrooms, dens and even campsites!
With this project we will have a wide variety of fabrics to choose from so they can make their bunting as individual as they like.
All you need to do is drop them off. We’ll give them a drink and a biscuit and have them waiting with a lovely set of bunting to take home.
Our tutor is DBS checked.
This session is open to 8 years and over.
What will we cover?
We’ll explain how a sewing machine works and how to use it, with an emphasis on beginning, finishing and respecting your seam allowance.
We’ll also explain the importance of seams and how to get a neat finish.
How will I be taught?
Your child will be taught in our lovely studio by a friendly and experienced tutor, through demonstration and guidance as they work.
They’ll also be able to ask questions, making sure everything is clear and that they’re getting the best results they can.
Do I need any previous experience or skills?
No experience or skills needed, but participants need to be 8 years or over.
Are materials provided? Is there anything I need to source myself?
All materials are provided.
What will I take home with me?
Your child will leave with their gorgeous bunting, and excitement about what else they could create.
Drinks and biscuits will be available but we recommend that you bring a packed lunch with you.
