Sydney is so fortunate to have some creative minds that take action as quickly as they blink their eyes. This explains how the owner of Sew Make Create, Melissa Tan-Lu, actually acts when it comes to helping people enjoy the Sydney crafts scene.
What is Sew Make Create up to now you might ask? Having only set up shop in trendy Chippendale almost a couple of months ago now, already there is a demand for children's craft classes. This is something that many of Melissa's clients actually want, so she has now done something about it, and at such short notice too - for these October school holidays.
These are the courses that Sew Make Create is currently conducting for kids these school holidays. Depending on the turnout, they might be re-run the next summer school holidays - you just never know. Sew Make Create's website has further details on dates and pricing.
Kids will be able to fall in love with crochet, just as easily as adults would. I recently experienced a crochet class with Bron at this establishment. My review (on this awesome experience for adults) can be found by clicking here. The kids will also finish off making a granny square. Class sizes are smaller for the kids version.
An easy way for kids to learn how to make their own brooches, as per this articles first image. An easy way to use beads and embroidery will be discovered. The age groups this kids class will be suited to: from ages nine to 17.
Halloween is just around the corner, and instead of trick or treating (maybe your kids can do both) why not let your inner Junior MasterChef come out of hiding with this unique course at Sew Make Create. Kids will learn frosting, as well as using an actual piping bag. Three different designs will be covered. Recipes are also included, as well as the ingredients and the yummy cupcakes to take home and enjoy later. It is requested that all participants bring their own apron and the container to take those yummy treats home. The cupcakes are dairy and gluten based.
4. Children's Plastic Bag Crochet course with Marina
Kids will also get an opportunity to crochet with plastic yard or "plarn" instead of yarn. Children from the ages of nine to 16 are able to participate in this school holiday activity at Sew Make Create.
You might be a parent thinking to yourself: "but I want to be able to do a course with my kid during these school holidays" and if so, you're in luck. Why? Sew Make Create have put together a school holiday special, a fabric rag rug making class where kids and their parents get to learn and participate together. A chance for kids to also create their own eco-friendly rug out of old garments.
Definitely more than enough options to keep the kids entertained these school holidays, mainly to see them through to the end of September. Who knows, they might also love the company of Sew Make Create's resident dog Pepper, of which I must say has recently shed his winter hair - he has had a haircut since I last saw him from when I attended the beginners crochet course recently. Sew Make Create, you have done it again. Wonderful.
