Your host, Sydney Community College is COVID-19 aware

This means that this teacher won't run a class if they've had flu symptoms in the last 14 days, and will adhere to relevant state restrictions (e.g. on maximum number of students per class)

Also, this class has a flexible cancellation/rescheduling policy, so participants are encouraged not to attend if they are unwell

Learn hand stitching at this sewing class in Sydney and take home a beautifully crafted piece of your own.

This class is perfect for beginners as you learn how to sew and hand stitching techniques. Most importantly you can explore the meditative qualities of hand stitching as you drink tea, work in stillness and connect with yourself and other like-minded people.

In the class artist and designer, Lorna Murray will take you through basic practical skills such as sewing a button, sewing a hem and mending, hand-stitching techniques, and completing your stitched panel. You will be able to choose what you would like to make in the class, whether it be a cloth purse, needle pouch, textile doll, series of small talismans, or whatever you desire.

At the end of the class, you will walk away with a wonderfully crafted piece, new skills and a feeling of rejuvenation after relaxing and practising mindfulness in class.

  • All our sewing courses are limited to 12 places (10 places in the city venue), which enables the tutor to give each student plenty of one-to-one guidance and instruction
