Summer Sewing Camp-Beach Bag and Sun Hat!
July 5 @ 9:30 am - July 8 @ 12:30 pm PDT$250,
Tuesday-Friday July 5-8th, 9:30AM-12:30PM
Ages 7-16, All skill levels.
All materials included
Get ready for a summer full of creativity and outdoor play with this morning camp. Kids will make a big beach bag and a sunhat, while gaining skills on the sewing machine, making design decisions, turning 2d shapes into 3d projects.
Our Summer programming is more thematic than our school-year projects, to use the condensed time to our advantage. All the kiddos will make the same pattern for their hats and bags, but be able to choose fabrics, add pockets, and as always, use some time to play and explore with fabrics.
This camp is appropriate for ages 7+, and we always encourage mixed skill levels in our camps. A more experienced sewist may add extra details like zippers, or work towards improved accuracy and seam finishing, while a beginner may have a goal to simply finish and need more support.
Our recommendation when considering these camps is that kids who happily sit and draw or create for hours will have a better time than those inclined to clamber and who need more movement in their days, as three hours of sewing can be a lot! We encourage breaks and movement, but it can still be a long morning.
Please pack a water bottle and a snack!
