School Holiday Creative Workshops

We have had an absolutely wonderful time over the past week with our School Holiday Creative Workshops. We are so proud of all the youngsters that have joined in on the fun, most of whom had never done any hand sewing before!

Our workshops have been designed to develop skills and knowledge in design and hand crafts, and we have introduced participants to applique, rosettes, hand sewing and machine sewing, as well as making fabric and felt plushies, jewellery and accessories, plus paiting and drawing techniques.

We are excited to be now stocking kits and patterns for sale in the shop, and during the new school term, we will be running sewing classes and workshops for young people, introductory classes for children, and also contemporary handcraft skills workshops for adults.

Following is a collection of photos taken during one of our Fantastically Fabulous Fashion workshops facilitated by Laura Maidment (Fashion Designer).

School Holiday Workshops!

FRL workshops are designed to enhance childrens' techniques and knowledge in a range of creative arts and contemporary hand crafts.

We want our kids to feel inspired and empowered, in their ability to CREATE and EXPRESS THEMSELVES. These skills will be a life long parnter, great to access in quiet times at home, for relaxation or as a boredom buster, and will always bring joy and a sense of achievement.

Children are asked to bring a healthy snack for their morning/afternoon tea, and a Paint Smock or old shirt is advised for Art Workshops.

All workshops are $35 per child - Price includes all high quality creative arts materials and workshops are run by experienced professionals.(see Facilitor Profiles for more information)

To book your child in to one of our workshops, email or pop in to the shop.

Places are limited to ten (10) children per workshop, so it is highly advised that you don't hesitate, to avoid dissappointed little people.
