PLEASE CONTACT FOR NEXT SCHOOL HOLIDAY SEWING DATES
There will be a variety of sewing projects to choose from with varying capabilities for each participant.
Cushion cover, Tote bag, fabric book cover, skirt and more!
Do bring along any materials and anything we can use from home – it’s great to give fabrics a new lease of life and educate self and others on how easily we can do this..
You could have a discussion at home and start to think about what you would like to do in advance – especially those with a big imagination, or loads of ideas – it’s great to get thinking in advance!
There will generally be a surprise available on the day – usually because I have thought of it and created a few days in advance myself 🙂
A GREAT IDEA FOR A BEGINNER OR THOSE LOOKING FOR A FUN PROJECT IS THIS…..
This is a great beginners and all round project. An excellent skill to learn (not just for kids)
Basic cushion cover (envelope style)
With Appliqué picture or design.
You could collect up some pictures or even cut some out of fabric in advance.
There will be materials available but if you want to bring your own for this project you will need:
Fabric: 95 cm x 45cm – (this could be lots of squares sewn together to make this up!)
Picture: Cut out in fabric or paper template
Remind sewists that they will be sewing all the way around the edges – so nice lines and curves they can stitch around – not too complex or too intricate.
We can adjust sizing of most of the projects to suit the size materials you may bring along – there is also plenty available to rummage through on the day too!
If you want to make a fabric cover for a book – bring the book along – it could be a hard cover sketch book or writing book.
.. from those that are already sewing with the machine to beginners..
Together we upcycle, recycle, sew, design and create.
With Libby Rose’s design and construction advice and teachings we begin to see life in what was ready to be discarded..
What starts as a disused pair of jeans may end up as a tote bag.
Curtains are now a skirt!
What once was a shirt is now a Book bag with pockets.
These classes are all FULLY inclusive.
We work in a non-forceful way both in our surroundings and in our practice, there is no judgement in this sewing space and beyond.
If you would like to chat anything through further or to discuss your child / teens specific needs, please do not hesitate to email or call.

I look forward to sharing this journey together.
Let's find something ready for waste and give it some new life
GET CREATIVE! (even and especially if you dont think you are!)
As with yoga, we practice Ahimsa. This means we 'do no harm’ to ourselves, others and our environment... ...in our thoughts, feelings and actions.
Let's try and go as Zero Waste as possible. We will have a 'pot' for any extras that you may not want or think you want. Buttons, threads, velcro it all can be used again, lets share..
Get your sketch books and colouring pencils, lets draw out from all the corners of our imagination..
Most of all its what we take home with us that counts.
All materials we will use are recycled, so please start collecting up garments, sheets, anything that you think could be used to create into a skirt, bag or anything else! You may even bring in things that you like the buttons on, or that you may not like but can swap or pass on to someone else that will!
