What will we cover?

In this session your child will make their very own skirt! During the session we will explain how a sewing machine works and how to sew (with an emphasis on beginning, finishing and respecting your seam allowance). This is a great project for the beginner.

How will I be taught?

Your child will be taught in our lovely studio by a friendly and experienced childrens’ tutor, through demonstration and guidance as they work.


With the opportunity to ask questions throughout, your child will get the best experience they can whilst making sure everything is clear.


Our tutor is DBS checked.
