2-Day Summer Block Printing & Sewing for Kids

Description
We are introducing the art of handcrafted textiles and the skill of hand sewing in our summer holiday workshop camp!

What you’ll learn and make:

Day 1 – Indian wood block printing

Learn the process of Indian wood block printing and pattern design. Conceptualise and block print on 100% cotton fabric that you will use to make your own cushion!

Day 2 – Design and sew your own pillow

Embellish your block printed fabric with decorative embroidery stitches, buttons, pompoms and tassels. You will then sketch your design, measure and cut out the fabric needed. Finally, you’ll handsew your personalised cushion and stuff it with fluffy cotton wool.

We designed the lesson plans making sure the techniques taught are age appropriate with guided challenges along the way to push the child’s learning ability. The workshop is also broken down into manageable bite-sized sessions to keep things interesting. Our class size is kept small (limited to 8 slots) to ensure each child gets a good amount guidance and attention from our instructor.

Each child will leave the workshop feeling inspired and having a sense of achievement as they are now equipped with the skill to design, sew and handcraft meaningful and unique textile goods.

Who is WithAutumn?
At WithAutumn, we work with small scale local Indian artisans that have been doing their craft for generations – such as our block carvers and women Khadi weavers for this workshop, and employ fair trade practices that take care of their social and environmental well-being and does not maximise profit at their expense. Our aim is to celebrate the the joy of these artisans and keeping the age old traditional crafts alive through combining traditional crafts with modern designs and experiential workshops.

Who is it for?
Children ages 6-10 years old.
