Come join me in my home studio, at Rose Cottage in Thomastown, for the first of my Summer Sew Studio camps. A range of design and sewing themed week long camps for kids aged 8 to 13.

The first of this Summer series is BACK 2 SCHOOL FUN where your child will get to explore the world of patterning, CMT (Cut, Make & Trim) and creating useful products that are perfect for school. During the week, there will be fun making a kids book bag, pencil case, scrunchies & hair bows. 

My goal is to teach the skill of sewing in a fun, inspiring way whilst giving kids the confidence to express their creativity and encouraging each child to have pride in their work. Your child will gain the following benefits:

  • Follow step by step directions to complete a task
  • Use of spatial thinking in following instructions
  • Practical application of math skills ( e.g. measuring, ratio, proportion, visualisation)
  • Development of creative skills involving colour, shape, texture, and self-expression
  • Organisational skills
  • Social/emotional skills (e.g. patience, teamwork and cooperation)

ALL MACHINES, FABRICS AND SUPPLIES WILL BE PROVIDED and you will leave with all samples made in classes.

Light refreshments will be served half way but if your child would like to bring a packed lunch, please feel free to do so!

Class size is limited to 4 and our workshops fill up fast so don't forget to reserve your spot by purchasing your childs place in the class.  If you would like to guarantee a place in the camp you can select the options below and pay online to hold your space. You also have the option of paying a non-refundable deposit to hold your place and pay cash on arrival. Please select the Deposit option for this.

Please note that all week long camps are for those who are familiar with machine sewing. If your child has not used a sewing machine before, please also select the CRASH COURSE TO MACHINE SEWING option and arrive at 8am for the 60min crash course. This is an additional €10.
