Free Sewing “Taster” Workshop for Young People

We are offering a half day workshop (3 hours) which will give 8 young people an opportunity to learn basic sewing skills. Using reclaimed fabrics to make either: double sided bunting, a tote bag or a half square head scarf they will learn how to:

  • Handle and cut fabric using a simple pattern
  • Use the basic functions of a sewing machine including threading, bobbin winding and sewing seams.
  • Hand sewing techniques, negotiate corners, clipping and turning, attaching bias binding.

These workshops are free for a limited time only.
