This course is ideal if you would like to learn to craft a garment together with your child.

Learning a skill together is an ideal time for bonding and this course is a good foundation for developing sewing ideas and projects together at home.


At The Fashion Loop, our focus is on primarily on delivering technical skills in fashion - Children learn the same skills as adults – there is no difference! We are skilled in teaching children how to use a sewing machine and develop the knowledge & skill required to produce a garment.


During the 5 week course students can expect to:

- Learn how to thread & operate a sewing machine

- Learn how to adjust stitch tension & troubleshoot

- Learn how to use an overlocker

- Learn how to create basic sewing seams (with accuracy!)

- Build up general knowledge about fabrics, threads & different sewing feet.


During this course, parent and child will make a simple garment together. More confident students will be encouraged to use techniques that increase their skill levels.


- Each Parent & Child pair will have their own work station with a Janome Sewing Machine

- Each pair will receive a Fashion Loop work folder

- All fabric, haberdashery items and equipment will be supplied

- Refreshments will be provided


- All tutors participating in this workshop are DBS cleared


This course is restricted to 1 adult & 1 child (aged 8 years +)

In total, the maximum class size is 4 pairs.


The main tutor for this course is Jay who has many years’ experience of teaching children & adults fashion design & sewing. Her label has shown at London Fashion Week and supplied prestigious boutiques in London & UK.
