What will they learn?
They will learn everything from how to thread a needle, hand sew, backstitch, running stitch, slip stitch and basic embroidery stitches.
How to design and work with a pattern/template, how to follow a pattern, how to cut fabric and how to sew.
The majority of the week will be hand sewing but each child will get to use a sewing machine also on a one-to-one basis.
What do they bring?
All materials are provided at the Camps they just need a bottle of water/juice and a packed lunch
What will they take home?
They will take home (I hope) a love of sewing but also several completed projects which I know they will treasure forever. Not only that but bucket loads of ideas, tips and techniques.
Workshops at Michelle’s charming country cottage have often been described as “an idyllic retreat” and compared to “a day at the spa”. They are a delightful way to spend a few hours in a truly inspirational setting in rural Ireland. You will receive a warm welcome on arrival and expert tuition but at the same time actively encouraged to explore your own creativity. It’s hard not to feel creative in Michelle’s cottage where you are surrounded by her upcycled pieces of furniture and shelves filled with all sorts of sewing notions, spools of thread and crafty bits and pieces. Not only that but Michelle’s enthusiasm for all things crafty is highly infectious!
