1st semester

The aim of the first semester is to introduce students to the basics of sewing and materials while developing their creativity and manual skills.

Simple projects are encouraged to introduce children to hand sewing. They learn how to handle the material and how to make the basic stitches of sewing: threading the thread through a needle, front stitch, back stitch and scallop stitch. This activity helps children learn patience, especially when threading the thread through the needle, to gain confidence and stimulate their creativity. The apprentice seamstresses work at their own pace, but progress each week to create new designs. For example, they sew a cuddly toy, a string pouch, a tablet case, a tote bag or a garland of pennants.

2nd semester 

The objective of the second half of the year is to make the children aware of the recycling of clothes and all the buttons, ribbons, braids and other things that are in our cupboards without any further use.

During the second half of the year, the children will prepare, according to their choice, a fashion show or a display for the end of the year, via a design book. The theme will be “I give clothes a second life”. They put their skills into practice and give free rein to their imagination to transform clothes into a creation, for example a daddy’s shirt into an apron.

A basic kit is required – contact the extracurricular activities office periscolaire@bru4.eu for more information.
