About Halloween Costume Making for Kids aged 3+

Book a space on our new Halloween Costume Making workshop this coming October! The perfect antidote to those single-use supermarket fancy dress buys, you and your child will be inspired by Halloween practices across the world before working together to create a spooky or fun costume from a range of pre-prepared designs using repurposed materials.

This creative and fun workshop is a fantastic way for parents and guardians to spend a couple of hours with their child making a costume – it could be a witch or wizard, superhero or princess, or even a scary monster! – whilst learning a bit about other cultures and the ideas behind reusing materials at the same time. Plenty of inspiration and guidance will be provided by our expert sewing tutor, Maija, as well as a short tea, coffee, and juice break to keep those creative juices flowing.

This is a hands-on workshop which will involve selecting, cutting, sewing and glueing fabrics and decorations to pre-prepared templates to create a functioning, wearable – and reusable! – costume.

No previous skills, experience or knowledge are required and all materials, tools and equipment will be provided. Participants are encouraged to bring along outgrown or discarded clothing, or fun materials and decorations from home to add to your creation.

This workshop is for parents or guardians with children aged 3 and over. Prices are for a parent or guardian and 1 child.

Want to create a costume from scratch? Join our 4.5 hour costume making workshop on Saturday 20th October!

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Halloween Costume Making for Kids aged 3+ are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
