About Made and Making
Made and Making runs SEWING & CRAFT WORKSHOPS and SEWING PARTIES. If you are looking for something original then fun look no further. We use our dedicated Workroom in Ditchling and our lovely Studio at South Downs Nurseries in Hassocks.
Workshops run during most school holidays and usually last for between two and three hours. A variety of projects are undertaken (please visit our website for the most up to date offerings) and all workshops are mixed so that means the boys can come too! Workshops start at just £25 and include all materials and refreshments (unless otherwise stated). Parent and Child joint workshops also run allowing you to learn and spend quality time together.
They run in a friendly and relaxed environment where beginners and experienced work alongside each other. In a creative environment they will undertake hand/machine sewing, learn how to use embellishments and trims and transfer their own designs from paper to fabric. For teenagers there are also specific workshops covering more advanced sewing techniques and projects.
Alternatively hold a sewing party to entertain them and they'll have an educational experience as well as something wonderfully hand made to take home and remember the day.
Hand sewing parties last an hour and a half . All children will make the same project and themes include:
- hanging bird decorations
- Notebook covers
- critters and felt pillows
- Beautiful corsages
If it is a mixed group then it will be tailored accordingly. All materials, thread and trims are included and we even supply you with party invitations.
We can hold parties at our premises or we can travel to you. you will need to have the space to sit the children in one area where we can all sew comfortably. Alternatively you may have hired a hall and we can meet you there.
Parties are for 8 years and upwards and we can cater for up to 12 children. (If there is an occasional younger member please let us know as their ability will vary).
Machine based parties can be held at our premises and we can cater for a variety of projects from our list of workshops. We can take a maximum of 8.
