Children are increasingly keen to learn to sew for themselves, and we’re all for learning a new practical skill. So we run sewing classes in the school holidays for 8-18 year olds. The holiday club is lead by Leonie Pratt and ably assisted by Imi our big girl helper who is a confident sewer and enthusiastic crafter and lovely young lady who our youngsters adore.
When and how much?
This class runs from 10.00am to 4pm, having launched Summer 2019 it’s been a great success and we will run in all school holidays. Cost £30 per day.
What else do I need to know?
Children are to bring their own packed lunch, afternoon snack and named water bottle. Unlimited juice and water are available. They are welcome to bring their own sewing kits if they have one, but it is not necessary. We are a self contained studio with our own toilet facilities. The Sewing Shed is inside Ilkley’s beautiful garden cemetery, weather permitting we will take a break outside at lunchtime. All ages will be taught along side one another as there is plenty of space for all and students can inspire one another. Children can be dropped at the door with ease as we have free on site parking, vehicular access is via Ashlands Road. Do drive through the gates – we are the chapel on the right hand side.
