Parent and Tween! Stitch a Cute Character Together!
It's easy to underestimate how well children can pick up the skills of hand-sewing but teachers know it's a great trick to build dexterity! Our holiday workshops are designed for a parent and children to spend some time together on a craft activity. You can bring one or two* children aged 9 years and over and you will all do your own version of the project at the same time.
We'll introduce you to the core embroidery stitches, and you'll be able to design your own cute character by assembling the features from our library of templates. Think classic unicorn eyelashes, kitty noses, loopy aliens, and more. You'll create a little character on an embroidery hoop, and you can embellish it with felt to add ears, flowers, hair and more.
It's so cute and easy, but it will give both of you an introduction to a lifelong skill!
