Sewing Academy Camp

Some people just want to sew!

This course will introduce students to hand and machine sewing, learning to make a variety of different seams over the course of the week.  They will learn to sew with confidence in a fabulous bright and airy environment.

Each student will design a range of bedroom/ home accessories and learn the art of applique.  They will execute their designs with guidance and support from our Resident Fashion Expert, Louise.

All materials are included in the course price. This workshop is strictly limited to 10 children.

    hi, what would be the usual age group that attend the camp?

  2. Stephanie says:

    Hi, I have 2 very interested 8 year olds— would they be too young for this camp?



    • says:

      Hi Stephanie, They are just a bit too young. We had some 8 year olds in the past and they really struggled. They would really be best to wait until next year, or trial the fashion academy classes in September where it is only 1.25 hours per week. Sorry, Paul

    Hi Paul,
    my daughter is interested in the Funky Fabrics camp from the 2nd to the 5th of August. Are there any free places? What time is the camp? And are there any after care possibilities afterwards?

      Hi Jo, We have only just finalised our Summer Camp Programme so there are places available. The camp times are 10am – 2pm. I am afraid we have no after care facilities as it just an art centre. It is a really good programme with a very experienced tutor. Best regards, Paul

    Hi Paul, are there still places available for this camp? I would like to enroll my daughter. Regards, Johanna

      Hi Jo, There are loads of places at the moment. It will only begin to book up when we are beginning our summer campaign in 10 days time. It is a really good course. Best regards, Paul

  5. Jo says:

    Hi Paul, I was supposed to book the camp. The payment amount which was shown was 140€, but on the webside it’s 120€. Could you please check and let me know? Please take this message off the webside.
    Regards, Johanna

      Hi Jo, As a four-day camp the fee is €120. It must be wrongly categorised in the booking system – this camp was only added at the last moment. I will get that sorted. In the meantime you can pay the €120 online or give us a call on 01 4063915 to pay over the phone. Sorry for the inconvenience. Paul

    Hi its there any spaces left on this camp. , thanks

    • says:

      There are places at the moment Susan. But there are only 15 places in total and it is the only pure sewing camp we are doing, so don’t leave it too late. Reserve her place online, even if you cant pay now – that way we wont give away your place without contacting you. Best regards, Paul

    I have two daughters aged 10 and 13 that would be interested in doing the sewing camp. Do you have any places left and where in Dublin is this camp held.

  8. ombretta says:

    Hi again, will the fashion academy camp be boring for a 16 years old girl? I might ask a cousin of my daughter to join us, but she is older. I would like to have them both in the same location if the case, but I haven’t found another class suitable for teens in Rathfarnham.. than you

  9. says:

    Hi Karina, Sorry for any confusion – the age is only a guide. If she is interested in learning to sew and create things she will love the camp. Call 01 4990614 if you have any questions or email Best wishes, Paul
