4 to 7 years
The art of sewing is one that children absolutely love to learn. This class touches on basic threading patterns, stitching, and a few advanced ideas for older students. Children will be handling different styles of fabric and discussing how to use it. From child-safe darning needles to easy-to-use patterns, each step of the way will be a wondrous adventure for nimble fingers to master the craft...we will even get the chance to use a real sewing machine!
Sewing aids focus and concentration, precision and small/gross motor skills development. Using new techniques and mirroring their teacher, the children in Sewing Club will produce basic sewing projects that give them a great sense of creative satisfaction, and encourage them to think about how things are made and how to put things together.
This is a great session for both boys and girls!
