Kids Textile Camp, Tuesday 26th – Thursday 28th July 2022

This workshop is running from 9am-3pm on Tuesday 26th, Wednesday 27th, and Thursday 28th July, and is suitable for 8-13 year olds. Bookings can be made for either one, two, or all three days.

Learning basic sewing skills in a fun and relaxed way can help equip our youngun’s with practical and useful knowledge and skills, and can inspire creativity to last a lifetime. This workshop aims at involving children with these activities in an accessible and entertaining way, to grow their interest in crafts.

These workshops start by showing each child how to make small repairs and basic alterations to items, progressing to them designing and creating their own pieces themselves!

Using a sewing box or sewing machine, they’ll learn to make and mend textile items, getting them to think about sustainable and eco-friendly ways of living by extending the life of their clothes or even progressing to making their own! A great introduction to sewing for any 8-13 year old, these workshops will provide full support and supervision by our experienced sewing tutors.

Program:

  • Introduction to mending by hand and by sewing machine

  • Sewing basics: we’ll make a pencil case or similar small accessory from scratch, practicing cutting fabric, creating seams, and adding finishing touches.

  • Playing with non-sewing repair techniques such as dry felting, de-pilling, and more.

  • The kids choose a project such as a simple garment, a cushion, or a bag to design and make. Along the way they’ll learn how to finish seams with a zig-zag stitch to prevent fraying; make hems; and even how to add pockets and other finishing touches.

  • Art and decorations: creation of an image from textiles,  beading, and embroidery.

Come and have your kids join us at the Remakery for a fun craft experience, whilst learning some practical and rewarding skills!

The age group for this workshop is 8-13 years old.

All equipment and materials will be provided, as well as refreshments and biscuits.
