What to expect in the first term

We believe in giving substance and sustainability awareness to each student’s individual sewing project by encouraging open and enquiring creative minds in a structured environment.  Each week we will give the children another aspect of fashion experience through an activity to enhance their solid base skill set and fashion awareness.  We will enable skills further so your child can create their own designs based on their ability, experience and individual direction. Beginner friendly.

Activities include:

  • Learning to sew on a machine
  • Drawing fashion ideas
  • Draping fabrics on a mannequin stand to create designs
  • Pinning and cutting fabrics
  • Basic pattern adaptation
  • Sustainability awareness
  • New sewing techniques
  • Making their own garment
  • Upcycling and repairing

At the end of term they will come home with:

  • A sketchbook of designs, moodboards and sustainable fabric awareness
  • Technical sewing samples to put in a file
  • A completed garment designed and made by them
  • An existing garment of theirs that has been upcycled or repaired by them

We develop your skills in:

  • Sustainable design awareness
  • Research
  • Illustration/drawing
  • Making moodboards
  • Hand and machine sewing
  • Basic pattern cutting
  • Garment construction
  • Sustainable fabric knowledge
  • Pinning, measuring and cutting
  • Machine and hand sewing
  • Specialist sewing techniques
