Join us this Christmas Holidays for our sewing workshop to create a pair of festive PJ bottoms.
The workshop takes place over two dates, both on Tuesday 20th & Thursday 22nd December 10am - 12:30pm. Each child will need to be able to attend BOTH sessions in order to take part in this workshop.
Please note this workshop is only suitable for children age 7-17, this is due to us operating sewing machines.
In order to attend this workshop, your child will also need at least a basic sewing machine ability as there will not be time to teach this in the sessions.
By the end of the two sessions your child should take home a finished pair of PJ bottoms and a knowledge of how to sew a basic dressmaking project.
Sewing machines, equipment and material will all be provided for the workshop. The material will be pre-bought and cut, and will be of a soft tartan style. Examples can be seen in the photographs, albeit colours may vary slightly.
I will need your child's basic measurements - waist, hip and inside/outside leg so I can pre-cut the material before the workshop. Please send these details by e-mail, upon booking.
We are a fully DBS checked and insured company, therefore a parent/guardian isn't required to stay for the duration of the workshop. Having said that, if you have a particularly nervous child or haven't been to a workshop with us before and would like to do so, then we are more than happy to accommodate this. If you could let us know beforehand that would be much appreciated.
Upon booking, I will send you a request to fill out a workshop form. We ask for these details for emergency contact details, knowledge of any medical conditions and/or allergies and also for permission to take photographs of your child, purely for marketing purposes. Please kindly fill out a form for all of your children attending the workshop. Please note these details are kept on file safely and secured and will be destroyed appropriately when necessary.
This workshop will be taking place at our studio, studio 2 at the Bovey Paradiso. Our address is 83 Fore Street, Bovey Tracey, TQ139AB. The Paradiso is situated opposite the Chinese and garage at the top of the high street in Bovey Tracey. If you can't find us for any reason please give me a call on 07864009316 and we can direct you.
Where possible please arrive five minutes before the workshop starts to drop your child/children off and then please arrive promptly at pick-up. Please wait outside the building and I will pop down and open the door up (even if the gallery is open downstairs).
Minimum & maximum numbers:
Where possible we always endeavour to run our workshops but sometimes it is not cost effective to do so. We therefore ask for a minimum of 2 children booked onto the workshop in order for it to go ahead. Our maximum number for sewing workshops is 4 children.
If a workshop is fully booked and you would be interested in your child/ren joining us, please do contact us as if we have enough interest there is no reason why we can't put another time slot or date available.
It goes without saying if your child tests positive for Covid-19, is showing any signs or symptoms or has been with someone that has tested positive, please do not attend the session. Please contact us to arrange a suitable alternative.
As a rule I don't usually offer cancellations, however where possible I do try my best to offer an alternative especially in such case of Covid symptoms.
As a business we take Covid-19 and the pandemic very seriously and I am doing my utmost to protect myself and my customers at this time. Our room will be well ventilated at all times, each child will be given their own materials and equipment for the duration of the session, all equipment and surfaces are thoroughly cleaned in between sessions, anyone attending the session who is 12+ and able to will be expected to wear a face mask at all times. Anti-bacterial gel will also be provided upon entry to the building.
If you have any questions at all about our policies or how our workshops run please don't hesitate to get in touch - email@example.com / 07864009316.
I look forward to seeing you on a workshop soon.
