In the run up to the long summer days, why not spend a day learning a new skill and welcoming in the early warmer months by making beautiful, lovingly made clothes for the children in your life.
Spend the day in a lovely park side setting, learning how to stitch a simple, classic tunic blouse suitable for ages 6 months to 7 years, incorporating long or short sleeves and easily adapted to become a soft summer dress.
And once you’ve mastered that, spend the afternoon sewing a simple pair of unisex trousers again suitable for 6 months to 7 years, in a lightweight cotton or linen, perfect for coolness in the summer.
During the workshop you will be provided with all the materials needed to create your own children’s tunics and trousers, including a sewing machine (if unable to bring your own), all fabrics, notions and templates. You’ll be able to spend the day concentrating on having fun learning a new skill, with a homemade lunch as well as tea, coffee and biscuits provided.
The workshop runs from 10am until 4pm and is kept to a maximum of 6 participants, to ensure that everybody has the time and space to learn at a relaxed pace with a handful of like minded people.
The workshop itself is held in the impressive Roundhay, Leeds home of Karen Lewis (owner of Blueberry Park) and will be taught by both Manda McGrory (Treefall Design) and Karen.
The workshop costs £65 for the full day and is suitable for all levels of skill.
Included in the price are all materials, your finished designs to take home, full sized patterns to take home, lunch and all refreshments.
