Sewing is very much like engineering: you’re building something. You have to plan ahead, visualize the finish project, and understand how each step creates the foundation for the next one.
It’s also good for children’s fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination, but the mental exercises are just as valuable. Problem solving, perseverance, and patience can all be learned from sewing. Following instructions and organizing abilities are also gained.
Each day camp teaches beginner sewing skills to children and is suitable for ages 6 years and up, boys and girls.
Camps are held July 25-28, August 1-4. Each single day camp is from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
A single day is €30 and any additional days are €25 each. Children bring a bag lunch and everything else is provided.
