Summer Workshop - KIDS Beginners Sewing - Friday 12th August 2-4pm
Join us this summer for our children's beginners sewing workshop on Friday 12th August 2-4pm.
Get to know how to use a sewing machine with our beginners sewing workshop. Learn how to set up your machine, how to thread a bobbin, how and when to use different stitches and seams and then put all your knowledge together to create an envelope cushion cover.
Please note this involves operating a sewing machine so is only suitable for children age 7 - 17.
All materials and equipment is supplied for the workshop including the sewing machines and attendees will take home a completed envelope cushion cover as well as a basic knowledge of how to operate a sewing machine.
This workshop is for absolute beginners, no previous sewing experience is required.
When booking x2 or more tickets at a time use code "WORKSHOPBUDDY10" to get 10% off your ticket. The perfect opportunity to bring along a friend or sibling.
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 - firstname.lastname@example.org / 07864009316.
I look forward to seeing you on a workshop soon.
