Our Kidz Korner “hands on” sewing program will teach your child foundation sewing skills with which they will make some easy sewing projects.

At age 8-12, children have the mental capacity to learn the basic concepts and sufficient manual dexterity to operate a sewing machine.  It’s actually the perfect age at which to learn.  

Sewing is an ideal creative activity for children.  It develops their manual dexterity, hand/eye co-ordination, and encourages focus and concentration. Completing a sewing project from start to finish fosters a sense of accomplishment that can boost a child’s morale and self-confidence. And it’s really great fun! Plus, it gives them a huge sense of achievement and self-worth.

Because they’re having such a great time, they don’t actually realise how many valuable sewing skills they are learning which will stay with them for life.

Who is this aimed at?

Primarily our “hands on” program is designed for children who have not sewn, or sewn much before.  We start at the beginning with the basics and give the children a foundation to expand their love of sewing.  It is suitable for both boys and girls who are aged 8 years or older.

When will it happen?

This program will run during Queensland’s school holiday periods.

What will the program entail?

It is envisaged the program will consist of a number of facilitated sessions that will inspire creativity and build life-long basic skills all while having fun at the same time!

Where will this “hands on” program be held?

Training Studio of the Ripley Sewing Learning Centre located at 27 Ribbonwood Street, Ripley.
