By teaching a child sewing, embroidery, applique and sewing machine use, it doesn’t only teach them sewing skills. The children learning with me, also learn the value of well made clothing, problem solving skills, how to repair and up-cycle, a sense of achievement and the simple joy of creating. Finding something that they love to do, helps to make a Soul sing.
I teach sewing classes for kids aged from 7 years old, all abilities welcomed. These classes are small so that all students get individual attention and the freedom to work on any project that inspires them. I currently run several classes: either after school hours, school holiday workshops and also a class on Wednesday mornings for home-schooled students.
The majority of the fabric used in this class is up-cycled or donated and I teach ways to use even the smallest scraps to minimise our impact on Mother Earth.
Each student also makes at least one item each year to donate ~ please check out these donations on the Soulful Giving page.
Thank you Tori for teaching my daughter and her best friend such wonderful skills.
They look forward to their lesson each week and are so proud of themselves for completing their first project today, their skirts!
I’m very grateful to find someone with such a beautiful and kind heart to be a role model for my daughter. ~ Sandya
My daughter is learning to sew with Tori. Tori is patient and makes learning fun. I know how passionate she is about creativity as a connection to Source and Self, so I’m glad my girl gets to learn through her. ~ Shawna
