May Half-Term Sewing School: Make a Zipper Bag!

  • Punk Me Up Cafe

This 2-hour workshop is all about learning sewing machine basics in a small-group environment. We'll cover how to thread a machine, master our straight lines and go on to make a simple zipper bag that can be used to stash all sorts of things from sleepover stuff to pencils and more.

Everyone will get some 1-on-1 time to use the machine. It's recommended that kids have some hand-sewing experience before this workshop. If they know how to sew a running stitch and thread a needle, they'll be just fine!

Any spare time at the end will be used to make some fabulous pom-pom zipper pulls! 

For ages 7+ / £19 each
