Kids Sewing Classes

We specialise in sewing and our friendly staff love teaching kids how to sew

Has your child shown interest in sewing? Or perhaps they are good with their hands and you think it would be a good life skill for them to learn. Whatever the reason, teaching kids how to sew is providing them with a timeless skill that will always come in handy.

Research shows that teaching children how to sew will benefit them in many ways, here are a few of our favourites...

✔ Develops fine motor skills
✔ Contributes to the development of cognitive skills
✔ Learn how to be patient
✔ Build Confidence through a sense of achievement

Minimum age: 10 years old
Parents are welcome to sit in or drop & go

The Way We Run Kids Classes

  • . We teach kids classes slightly differently to the way we run adult classes. As children have a lower attention span, they generally want to jump straight into the sewing. At Sydney Creative, we tend not to overload them with the "boring" information in one go, instead, we like to get stuck into the sewing and teach them about the machine gradually. In these classes, we take a hands-on approach where kids learn as they do the sewing.

Projects

  • . We generally work on something simple to begin with, like a cushion cover, a dog bandana or scrunchie. We then move on to more complex projects to advance their knowledge and sewing skills. Here are some projects we've worked on previously in our kids classes:
  • Tote Bag
  • Rolled up pencil case
  • Zipped pouch
  • Pet bed
  • Sewing machine cover for their machine
  • Garments, starting with a basic pattern

Additional Information

  • All classes are one-on-one unless your child want's to come with a friend, if this is the case, please contact us for a different rate
  • Sewing machines and tools are provided. If your child has their own machine, it's recommended to bring the machine along for the class.
  • Parents are welcome to sit in on the session, our studio is big enough for you to watch. If you would like to take part in the class, please contact us to discuss rates
