Swainswick Explorers events : Autumn 2018

Sewing Saturdays at Swainswick Explorers


These sessions are for beginners, boys & girls, and those who’ve done some sewing and want to do more. Design your own fabric creations, like a bag or cushion cover. If you are not sure you can use one of our pre-cut patterns, animals like a mouse, cat, alien or dragon to make a soft cuddly animal. There will be lots of opportunities to decorate your object with beads, buttons, coloured threads, wool, applique patches, ribbons and nice embroidery stitches and older children can use the sewing machine.

Led by 2 lovely local designer makers, this 3 hour workshop is for children aged 8-12 years. Dates and online booking:

Next dates Sat 1st Dec & Sat 8th Dec, making Christmas decorations 10am-1pm. £30 per session.
