Stitching Stories sewing workshop for kids is presented by Textile artist Anne Williams. In this half day kids workshop Anne will provide children 6 years and up with the opportunity to work with needle and thread and learn the basic skills of sewing.
In today’s society, few children have had the opportunity to sew or even see anyone hand sewing and taking a needle and thread for a ‘walk‘ around a piece of cloth is a new and intriguing venture. Students will be provided with a piece of fabric (hessian), a needle and a wide range of coloured woollen threads with which to sew. They will stitch freely on the cloth and learn some basic stitches that will enable them to create an original design.
Date: 17th September
Venue: York Town Hall
Workshop fee: free (including materials)
