Only 6 students per camp

Beginning students will choose fabric from my collection, also all notions (thread, zippers, snaps etc.) are provided too. You really only need to bring a child and water bottle!

Advanced students may bring their own fabric for larger clothing projects they are responsible for pre-washing their own fabrics before bringing it to class.

Tuition is due in full when you sign up.

Sewing Camp

Beginning students will choose fabric from my collection. Fabric choice is a very important part of the design process and while their choices may not be ours, I allow each student to develop this skill without outside influence! Students will learn how to wind bobbins, thread the machine, vary stitch selection for the different projects, they will also learn how to read basic patterns and hand sewing skills. All fabric, notions (thread, zippers, snaps etc.) are provided.

Advanced students will learn more advanced skills, with more intricate project. Students are allowed to bring their own fabric for projects if they would like.

Each day students will learn a new skill, practice that skill and then create a project designed to include this new skill and build on the skills they have already learned. The end of each day students are given free choice time to create on their own, this is such a valuable time for the students to problem solve and work through possible solutions.

Craft Camp

Have fun learning new craft skills or perfecting those you might already have! Students will learn various craft processes in a fun and informative small group setting. Projects will include teaching students to use design software and a cutting machine for paper crafts, hydro dipping, hot mess canvas, paper mach´é and many more fun and messy crafts. All supplies are provided, you just need to bring your child and water bottle!

Each day will focus on one major project while also including other smaller projects that students can work on over the course of the day while either waiting their turn or when projects need to dry between steps. There will always be a selection of craft projects for them to work on, keeping them engaged and busy throughout the morning.

Photography Camp

Learn the basics of camera operation, frame composition and lighting. Students will learn to think about what they are shooting and how best to capture that moment.  Basic editing skills will be covered to enhance student’s work and a workflow from camera to final product.  All projects allow students to express their creativity while demonstrating a particular technique.  We will also cover older techniques of photography such as pinhole cameras and sun prints. Students may bring their own camera or borrow a camera for the duration of camp. 

Each day the students will learn a new idea or technique via a brief lecture or demonstration then be given an assignment to practice that skill.  Student’s will then upload their images, choose and edit their final images and present to the other students.  At the end of the week we will hold a digital art exhibition of all the wonderful work produced. 

Information on levels and sewing machines

Levels of Sewing Instruction

I offer instruction for complete beginner to advanced beginners and beyond. If your child has taken a session with me before please let me know so I can plan new and challenging projects for them.

Sewing Machines

After your child has completed the beginning level sewing camp on my variable speed sewing machines, they have the option to bring their own machine provided it is in good working order. I feel this is an important option as when they get comfortable using a machine, they may want to try projects at home, and having the basic skills on their own machine will make this process much more fun!
