Kids & Teen Summer Sewing and Craft Camp / Toronto (Riverside / Leslieville)
Welcome to the Irish Design House's Sewing School and Summer Camp. We have been teaching sewing and pattern drafting classes here at the store's studio for quite some time, and this will be our second summer to host our summer camps.
There will be select days over the course of the summer that will be allocated to the camps. There are two age groups - girls & boys aded 6-10 and girls & boys aged 11-14. No experience is necessary and each student will work at his or her own pace. This is a really fun day to allow students explore their creativity and create a tshirt design that they can take home at the end of the day. All materials and blank tshirts are provided. All you need is a packed lunch.
