In this 3-hour workshop, your child will be introduced to the art of block printing and learn basic sewing skills to make a one-of-a-kind snuggy pillow!
WHAT YOU'LL EXPECT
Block Printing With Handcarved Wooden Stamps
Learn the process of Indian wood block printing, pattern design, colour mixing and of course making prints with handcarved wooden blocks! We will be printing on handwoven Khadi Cotton which will then be sewn into a pillow.
Sew & Embellish Pillow
Once we set the ink on your block printed fabric, you will learn basic sewing skills by hand and even try sewing with a sewing machine! Embellish your pillow with sewn on buttons, pompoms and tassels. Finally, you will stuff your pillow with fluffy cotton wool.
We designed the lesson plans making sure the techniques taught are age appropriate with guided challenges along the way to push the child’s learning ability. The workshop is also broken down into manageable bite-sized sessions to keep things interesting. Our class size is kept small (limited to 6 slots) to ensure each child gets a good amount guidance and attention from our instructor.
Each child will leave the workshop feeling inspired and having a sense of achievement as they are now equipped with the skill to design, sew and handcraft meaningful and unique textile goods.
Suitable for children 5 years old and up.
You may pack some snacks for your child. Water will be provided in class. Minimum 3 to start a class, if minimum class size is not met, we will contact you to reschedule or arrange a refund.
