We are offering a 3-day camp during the last week of June to accommodate families from the schools who break for summer early!
These camps will be tailored to suit the ages and experience of our participants so we've kept the format open to all levels of sewing experience from ages 7-16.
Tuesday – Introduction to the sewing machine - Learn hand and machine basics and practice making fun projects by with felt and sewing paper before moving on to fabric!
Wednesday – Free Motion Sewing + Quilting - Learn how to draw with a sewing machine! This is a great way to really customize your designs and express your creativity! We'll design our own fabrics which can be use on Thursday to make finished useful projects!
Thursday – Projects – Take everything you've learned so far and create projects like: pillows, tote bags, zippered pouches, oven mitts, placemats or an apron.
The Makehouse is now in its fifth year offering summer camps and the experiences we offer continue to grow. We have taught hundreds of kids to create, design and sew through our workshops, camps and schools. We can’t wait to teach yours!
All materials and equipment are provided for each and every project but if your child has any special fabrics that they would like to bring from home, please send them along!
You can also send your own sewing machine from home (which can be stored here during the camp).
We encourage you to pack snacks and refreshments with your kids as it’s much easier to be creative when you have fuel for the brain!. Please inform us if your child has any food allergies.
