Sewing School for Kids & Teens

Anytime Art Studio 

The Anytime Art Studio classes are designed to introduce primary and secondary school children to the art of needle craft and textile: hand sewing, machine sewing, embroidery, fabric printing. Teaching and learning is through demonstration, set practical exercises and creative projects. Contemporary and historical artists are introduces to expose students to range of approaches to their own art making and to boarded their appreciation of both art & culture and handcraft.

The Anytime Art Studio classes teach children a range of learning techniques and creative approaches and models the skills to apply them in structured environment. 

It is my belief that everyone can be creative and use it to make any aspects of life more enriching. Throughout gaining experience and learning about ourselves we can express more effectively. Everyone needs to feel free to explore, experiment and invent in a unique way. That happens through both directed and self-directed practice. With guidance, individual approach and friendly atmosphere while learning, student will build up their confidence and skill set. I believe that improving our creativity is one of the best ways to achieve better quality of life anytime and that creative people can change the world to better!

Anytime Art Studio Program 

Throughout the year, a range of materials, processes and techniques are introduced including: sketching, working with woven fabric, knit fabric, sewing a zipper, machine sewing, hand sewing, printmaking, card making and more.

Every class focuses on one or more combinations of sewing skills.

Simple projects are used to repeat and practice a skill.

Techniques are demonstrated, practiced and applied. 

Emphasis is placed on repeated experiences, as learning is by practice. This gives children a chance to explore a subject, try out different ways and gives them the time to gain more control or sensitivity with the material. The aim is both to increase a child’s confidence using a material and tools and then expose them to its creative potential, through set creative projects. 

Subjects are many and varied and range from household items: cutlery pouch, apron, tote bag, drawstring bag pack, garment: pyjama shorts, gathered skirt, accessories: pencil case, cards, keychain.

Classes are designed to emphasise creative expression through decision making, confidence with material and tools and an individual response to subjects and materials.

Program is delivered face-to-face in Anytime Art Studio location for 1 hour 30 minutes, weekly during the school term (please see Studio dates for each Term).
