TIE-DYE & SEW A CUSHION
With the current trend for tie-dye effects in clothing and home wares continuing in 2017, FASHIONSKOOL is excited to offer this fun and creative hand-dyeing /machine-sewing workshop for children aged 8-14, with or without previous sewing experience. Enjoy learning the creative art of tie-dying fabric, which will become your own unique patterned cushion cover.
You will be able to choose from a selection of lovely colours and experiment with various techniques in dyeing your fabric. During the drying process you will have a basic lesson on using a sewing machine which will include how to thread up, stitch accurate straight seams, pivot to create corners and neaten raw edges. All of these sewing techniques will be put to use when you stitch your cushion during the afternoon. Those who have already used a sewing machine previously will practice their sewing skills and improve their machine-sewing confidence.
Equipment, dyes, fabric, cushion pad and light refreshments are all provided, however please wear your old clothes for this workshop. In addition, you will need to bring a packed lunch, weather permitting we'll have a picnic in the garden.
