Who is this course for?

This course is suitable for children aged 6 years + accompanied by their parents or guardians who are looking for the opportunity to learn together. It is open to all ability levels but is aimed at beginners. The class will be tailored to the participant’s abilities. All our staff are DBS checked. 

The course may be accessible for children with disabilities. The room is wheelchair accessible. Please contact us to discuss your specific situation and needs.

Age ranges are set carefully to take into account key age developments, materials being used and course stimulus. It is very important that age ranges are not too large or across key stages and therefore need to be adhered to. 

Do you need to bring anything?

All course materials and equipment are provided. One t-shirt is provided per ticket for you both to work on together as a family.

You could begin collecting patterns on paper or fabric for reference use.

Are there any additional costs?
