Threadheads Summer Session 2022

Threadheads is a sewing and creative club where your tween/teen will learn about fashion, costume and accessory design and how to create their own style. Participants will learn different skills like indigo dyeing, marbling, hand and machine sewing and creative design. All materials are provided and projects will include accessories, home decor and simple garments.
Due to the fact that summer events are hard to plan for and attend, we are offering drop in workshops this summer rather than teaching a continuous project. Each week we will be creating a different project that will be completed during that class.

We are offering a discount of $195 for those interested in signing up for all six sessions. Individual sessions are $35. Sign up for the dates you want or the entire session in the dropdown below.
Please note that our classes now take place at Trinity Anglican Church in Blyth at 166 Dinsley Street.

No experience necessary.
Open to all genders aged 10 to 15
Space is limited.

When: Wednesdays 7pm to 9pm
Runs: August 10th, 24th, 31st
Where: Blyth Trinity Anglican Church

Threadheads

FACTS is offering a sewing and creative club for tweens and teens aged 10 to 15. Through different weekly projects we will teach elements of design, both hand and machine sewing skills, and creative problem solving within a sharing environment. Our goal is to encourage participants to express themselves through their own designs, styling and creativity while having lots of fun. Projects will include simple garments, accessories, jewellery, fashion design projects and fabric dyeing and painting.

The club is lead by Jennifer Triemstra-Johnston, a costume designer with over 25 years experience in costume and fashion design and construction. Jennifer is the owner of Pick a Posie Costume Shop in Blyth and the director of the Fashion Arts & Creative Textiles Studio (FACTS). She believes that sewing and fibre arts are a great way to foster community and learn valuable life and creative skills while having a lot of fun.

Fashion is part of our everyday lives. It is how we express ourselves and define who we are. What better way to explore the world of self expression than by learning about how to design and create clothes and accessories for yourself. Sewing and fibre arts is both a meditative and social practice that will introduce your child to skills and creativity that will stay with them throughout their lives.
Sign up for Threadheads now as space is limited.

When: Wednesdays 7pm to 9pm
Runs: August 10th, 24th, 31st
