New Class: Toddler Sewing “Lil’ Gal Designs”

We are so excited to introduce a brand new class for toddlers next semester — “Lil’ Gal Designs” — where your young child (ages 2-4 years) can get in on the cool fashion action that their older siblings have been loving!

‘Lil Gal Designs is a special daytime class for creative toddlers ages 2-4yrs.  This hands on class creates age appropriate crafts like glitter lace crowns, simple painted jewelry, life size paper dolls complete with life size dresses, and many more fun and fabulous activities for your little gal.

*Please note this class required a parent or caretaker to accompany each child

This is an amazing opportunity to work with your children on a fun and unique new skill. It develops young people’s dexterity, fine motor skills, and creativity through decorating, gluing, coloring, and even some simple basic sewing! Studies have shown that exposing young people at that age to hands-on and free-exploration activities promotes physical and mental health. As their bodies grow, these types of activities help them to learn to maneuver space and interact positively with other people around them.

The class runs on Wednesdays from 11am to noon, for 10 weeks at our Midtown Location. The class costs $300 – get more info here and register here!
