Service Description

Join us for the return of Sustainable Sewing Club! If you are feeling the pull to slow down, mindfully work with your hands, and learn some of the homesteading skills your Grandmother and Great Grandmother likely learnt as children, this one is for you. Lead by Amanda of 'Slowly Clothed', you can expect a relaxed morning with like-minded women, on the open air deck among the treetops. This workshop welcomes all levels of sewing experience including the total beginner. We'll learn the basics of threading a machine, before being guided step-by step in upcycling a pillow case into kids shorts (size 0-5). You'll leave with the confidence to start practicing some basic sewing techniques at home, as well as a cute, hand-made, upcycled piece for your little one that you are SO PROUD OF! Together, slowing down our fashion habits to do our part in protecting Mother Earth. Please arrive at 8:45am for a 9am sharp start time. Your ticket cost is inclusive of one adult attendee, all materials required, fruit platter, bliss balls and herbal tea. Children are welcome to attend for free and hang by your side with some kids sewing activities available, or play freely in our nature play sanctuary right beside us. All materials required are supplied, including the pillow case. But if you have an old pillow case at home you'd prefer to use feel free to bring it along!
