(10am-12pm)

Make a Star Beach Bag-(10-12years) with Intro to sewing machine

Amazing opportunity for older children (aged 10-12) to create their very own first beach bag (adult size!) with a decorative star on the front. They will learn how to transform a “Dad’s shirt” into a bag while getting their hands on the machine. It will activate their young engineering mind to put the pieces together in the right order as well as having fun decorating it at the end. The star will be a nice way to learn how to coordinate their foot on the pedal and hands on the machine with “stops and go”! AND it will – I hope- inspire them to love re-purposing and sewing to protect their precious Planet. This is the beginning of a mindful journey! (-;
All they need to bring is one of Dad’s shirt (with a hole or a stain will be fine!) and I will provide the rest of the materials + a snack . Price £20/child.

This class is now FULLY BOOKED.
