Young Stitchers – Sew a Dungaree Dress
This course is aimed at those with an interest in sewing and dressmaking aged 11 – 16. Throughout the 6 week course we’ll take students through the key elements of learning to sew and hopefully fire up their passion for fashion and textiles!
As well as helping with their creativity, learning to sew helps develop coordination and concentration skills, encourages expression through fashion and fabric and complements in-school activities such as textiles classes or Duke of Edinburgh skills activities.
Each course is 6 weeks long and will cover getting comfortable with the sewing machine, understanding how to follow a sewing pattern and sewing an on-trend dungaree/pinafore dress with either buckles or buttons on the straps and two length options.
Our sewing classes are relaxed and friendly, taking place at our beautiful studio at Holme Grange Craft Village in Wokingham, Berkshire. Students get to use our brand new digital Janome sewing machines and class sizes are capped.
Please note we are a Covid-19 Secure Further Education venue and have implemented all government guidelines. Please see our FAQ’s page for further information.
The class includes expert instruction, use of the machines, tools, threads, interfacing etc and you’ll keep a copy of the dungaree pattern so you can make it again outside the class.
