Sewing and fashion design for children: explore your creativity! This course is designed for independent learning and creative types! 

Our teaching system is designed specifically for kids: it speaks to children and helps them develop their creative skills step by step. We dive straight in with making. No boredom here. Your child will learn how to design & make clothes that fit them. Each module builds on the previous, so their skills and confidence build as they learn. High-quality pre-recorded video tutorials are available for life: no time pressure, let your child learn at their own pace.

Short lessons keep their attention but each one is packed full of information.

And for the parents?

This course comes with a ready to print downloadable PDF workbook, covering the course, which can help as a prompt. It also comes with useful UK fabric shop locations. 

Our courses are ad-free and expertly curated so you get the maximum benefit from the content. Pause, rewind and rewatch if required.

And remember, we are always on hand via email if you want to chat.

We recommend this course for any age from 7 to 13: younger ones might require some assistance, and older ones can be learning on their own.
