Have fun being creative! We will sew, knit or crochet small and larger projects, learning and practicing machine skills and crafting techniques. Budding crafters between 8 and 16 years can learn and expand their sewing skills in these classes. Materials for smaller projects are covered in the fee, but kids will need their own tools. Please ask about our affordable but good quality starter packs for kids.
These classes have a flexible start and finish! We know that afternoons can be crazy, so we would like to make it easier for you. Kids can start their class between 3:30 and 4, and finish between 5 and 5:30. There - a bit of breathing space!
8 classes per term, 1.5 hrs each
$160 per term, includes all materials except for larger items like garments and quilts, or if their choice falls outside of the "free materials box".
