5 weeks


6.30 – 8pm

Child’s Age:

8 years +




The Fashion Loop Studio (Castle Road – details upon registration)



This course is ideal if you would like to learn how to use the sewing machine and overlocker, & 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 delivering skills in fashion and apparel and, therefore, our courses teach students techniques and skills in clothing production.

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.


The Fashion Loop aims to give your child the best possible start in fashion sewing.
