Sewing classes for teens
Teenagers love to express themselves with individual style, and what better way than at our affordable, fun and regular sewing classes, after school during term time in Hove? A sociable and pleasurable experience while learning a life skill.
Cake, biscuits and soft drinks are served at the start of the class run by Sarah, a friendly teacher with more than 25 years experience.
A big welcome awaits your teenager as they develop their skills and creativity at Sew Retro. We support and encourage each student to show originality with their own designs. Through our classes teenagers design and make any item from a pencil-case to a prom dress.
In our classes they can learn to sew, design, create, pattern cut, alter, repair and customise by taking a high street outfit and making it their own. They are free to work on their own project at the weekly sessions, students do not have to make the same items.
Classes are fully equipped with Singer sewing machines, Janome over lockers, cutting tables, pressing equipment and sewing tools, open to all ages and levels ofability in a small group.
Help is offered with GCSE textiles and Duke of Edinburgh awards.
