Summer Sewing Workshops for children and teenagers are being organised by the Dot to Dot Studio in East Hoathly.
They begin on Wednesday, July 24, with a one-day workshop where you can make an appliqué cushion or tote bag. You will create your own appliqué design using a range of techniques and turn it into a cushion or tote bag – brilliant for boys and girls.
A craft festival takes place on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, August 5 to 7. This three day workshop gives you the chance to try out lots of different textile and craft projects.
The projects will include making felted flowers and beads using natural wool, having a go at tie dye, block printing and bleach designing with stencils, and to sew your own customisable drawstring.
Another one-day Skater Skirt/Shorts Workshop takes place on Wednesday, August 14, where you will learn to make your own pair of summer shorts in just one day.
There are so many variations you could choose to make your shorts unique. Roll up shorts, Drawstring shorts, Cargo Pockets, Funky ElasticWaistband, Neon Fringe … the list is endless.
A two-day Hoody Workshop is planned for Wednesday and Thursday, August 28 and 29. Here you will make yourself a soft and cosy hoody from a range of organic 100% cotton sweatshirt fabrics.
You will learn to cut and mark your fabric from a paper pattern, construct your garment using a sewing machine and overlocker, apply patch pockets, add stretchy cuffs, apply your own decorative extras in the form of appliqué.
