Kids & Teen embroidery workshops

About me:

I’ve been teaching kids workshops for a number of years now and absolutely love them. Kids really do ask the best questions and they often tell me how relaxing they find my classes.

I take great pride in teaching them to enjoy a non screen activity which is both fun and hugely practical too. I encourage their creativity and to explore their own personality in their work.

I use quality materials and teach based on each individuals ability and needs. 

I teach children every week and have a full clean DBS to allow me to work with children which l am happy to supply upon request.

Please see example details and photos of classes below.


➡️ For bookings, l now have a set up a workshop section on my website shop where you can make a purchase which you can find in the link below. In the comments please let me know your child’s name and your email address and will confirm the final project by email and full details.

Age 6-9 year Embroidery & Craft workshop

My age 6-9 workshop is perfect for crafty kids.

For this workshop, l’ve designed a number of seasonal craft activities for them to enjoy.

We will start with some hand stitching on aida fabric in a cross stitch style using child safe needles. Using a mixture of text and halloween designs they will have ample time to practice threading needles, tying knots and stitches like back stitch, cross stitch, and straight stitch.

We will also do some other craft activities which l’m designing at the moment and will help them really explore their creativity! 

This workshop is perfect for beginners, and for those that have more experience l have many other stitches we can add to the design! I adapt all my classes to all individuals, as l love seeing them walk away with a real sense of achievement.

Each child will take away:

  • A hand stitched Halloween design on aida fabric which will be finished in an embroidery hoop.
  • Another craft activity l’m currently designing.
  • An appreciation of hand stitching including how to thread a needle, tie a knot and simple stitches like running stitch, back stitch, cross stitch and for some a lazy daisies.

Drinks and snacks provided 💕

As a parent you would be very welcome to stay, but l am also happy for this to be a drop off workshop. I teach young children every week and have a full DBS. 

Here’s what others say about me:

Age 9+ Embroidery workshop 

My age 9+ workshop is perfect for crafty teens.

This Witchy kitty and Pumpkin design will teach them stitches like back stitch, chain stitch, satin stitch and fly stitch. I only use quality materials like DMC embroidery threads as l find they really help enjoy the craft that bit more. We will also use some of my favourite fabric paint pens.

This workshop is perfect for beginners and for those that have more experience, l have many other stitches ready to teach we can add to the design! Like with all my workshops l love for all to walk away with a sense of achievement, so l adapt to all abilities. 

Each teen will take away:

  • A full embroidery kit with written and video instructions to finish up if needed – Some of this kit could be used on future projects
  • New/increased knowledge of a beautiful mindful craft
Drinks and snacks provided 💕

In every workshop l run for this age group, many find it really relaxing and a surprising nice change from screens. Having learnt myself age 7 and still bursting with enthusiasm for it, l hope that l’ll encourage them to pick it up again once leaving the class.

Corporate events - Corporate Wellness days

Having worked in large retailers and corporate roles for over 15 years, l understand how important it is to focus on the health and wellness of a team. When l first started work, most companies used to attempt to boost their Employee satisfaction score down the pub. So l’m pleased to see that evolving and creative and mindful activities top of company agendas.

What if you could give your team the tools and kit they need to manage stressful situations? What if you could give them a platform to slow down and truly relax?

Embroidery workshops for corporate wellness days are a great way to give your team an opportunity to explore something different from the everyday. Embroidery is a portable and mess free craft, which is also perfect for beginners and those that have never picked up a needle and thread before. 

Embroidery has many benefits such as:

  • Helps reduce anxiety – aids slowing down
  • Keeps your brain healthy – gets creativity flowing
  • Keeps your eyes sharp – attention to detail
  • Helps build confidence – feelings of accomplishment

To name just a few!

I run 2 hour embroidery workshops which are suitable for complete beginners or those with more experience too.

I run groups of up to 10 at a time from your offices or we can find a suitable location. Working in a group of up to 10 allows us to learn the stitches in a nice sized group but also time for me to help individuals with technique and any questions.

For events such as corporate wellness days, l also have a range of designs suitable for mini workshops which would take 30 minutes. 

I have a range of ‘off the shelf’ designs that l can run, however l love to create bespoke designs so the topic is in line with your needs.

I’d love to chat to you about boosting your employee wellness with an embroidery workshop. Please get in touch by emailing kat@treasurekave.com 

Craft parties - Start your embroidery journey

Did you know l am also available for Birthday parties, hen parties and craft parties as of January 2023!

Adding in a 2 hour craft session for an event can be a lovely ice breaker and bonding activity. Embroidery with me is mess free, stress free and perfect for all abilities age 9+ and up to 10 people.

I can come to a location of your choice around SW London/Surrey and will provide all the materials needed. All the kits l provide will have written up instructions and video’s so if something isn’t finished on the day it’s possible to finish at home. 

Having taught all ages and abilities l’m able to adapt each party to your specific needs and enjoyment.

I have a range of designs that are ‘off the shelf’ and l am also able to create a bespoke project for you and your friends/family to do.

Prices are on request ❤️

Please do get in touch if you have a craft loving youngster who would love to have a craft party, or if you are planning an event. I’m have a full clean DBS and regularly teach kids.
