craft classes for all ages young and old

Craft classes

Discover your own passion for needlework and let your creativity shine! If you would like to master the skills of sewing, knitting, crochet or embroidery, join one of our classes. We teach children from as young as 5 years, as well as teens and adults.

Craft classes are popular extra murals at schools. We have held crafting classes at Kenridge Primary School for younger learners since 2009. Besides teaching valuable skills, we love seeing how thrilled learners are of their accomplishments each time they complete a project.

Classes for teens and adults are held during the week. You can either bring your own sewing machine or use ours. All materials are included.

Corporate team building

Team building improves communication and relationships and ultimately increases productivity in the workplace. Instead of the usual team building activities, we offer something different… a needlework craft activity, which  everyone can do and enjoy.

We provide all the materials and guidance to enable your team to complete a handmade creation. You’ll have fun learning new skills together, while a facilitator engages all the participants to ensure the session achieves maximum success. This encourages participants to get to know each other better. Without the usual stress and pressure of the typical team building scenario, your colleagues will be thanking you for the good experience and you’ll notice the difference in your business.
