Fun classes for boys & girls at The Fabric & Felt Studio

Thanks to Pinterest and Instagram, traditional skills are currently experiencing a revival - from home baking and knitting to sewing and dressmaking! Anyone can learn how to sew and it is a great activity for boys and girls aged 9 to 15 years.

After mastering a few basic skills, kids can make anything from funky tote bags and cushion covers to cute soft toys and even their own personalised fashion!

Best of all, it is a low-cost activity and a great way for kids to express their indiviual creativity.

By learning to sew, kids will also develop a variety of life skills:

  • To begin a sewing project, kids must visualise what they are making. This might be through illustrations or sewing patterns and learning how to construct a garment or toy can assist the development of their creativity and improve their math skills as they practice measurement, arithmetic and geometry.

  • Once the project is visualised, kids can start to understand how to put it together using a range of different textile materials and tools. This is a great way for kids to expand their vocabulary and discover different sewing techniques.

  • Now it's time to get sewing. As kids learn how to control the sewing machine, they will feel a sense of empowerment and quickly see how they can create a range of unique fashion, accessories and toys. Kids will also learn to focus as they must concentrate on how to feed fabric through the sewing machine.

  • With their projects complete, kids will gain a great sense of pride and achievement. They will love using their new garments and fashion and showing family and friends what they can create.

    If you think your child would like to learn to sew, The Fabric and Felt Studio is currently presenting a series of creative hands-on Children's Sewing Classes and School Holiday Workshops in their inviting studio in Gumdale.

    This is a great opportunity for kids to learn basic sewing skills in an inspiring and encouraging setting. Led by the friendly Shelley, owner of The Fabric and Felt Studio, kids will be able to work at their own pace and skill level.

    To begin, kids will become familiar with the functions of a sewing machine and taught how to sew straight and curved lines. Kids can then measure, cut and sew a cushion cover (envelope style), tote bag, along with a number of other creative useful projects.

    To participate in a class, kids who already own a sewing machine and common sewing notions are welcome to bring them along. However if not, Shelley has machines and all sewing notions necessary to complete all projects.

    The workshops run every Saturday, from 9am to 12 midday and from 1pm to 4pm and are held in a small group of 4 persons, so all children receive personalised advice and handy tips and tricks.

    The participation fee is $35 per child (plus materials) and bookings can be made on The Fabric and Felt Studio website.

    Upcoming holiday classes include Kids Felted Hoop Art and Make a Dream Catcher. The participation fee is from $40 per child (plus materials) and bookings can be made here.

    Check out the full range of classes at The Fabric and Felt Studio website.
