Kids Sewing and Fashion: Gubei Class

The Gubei class will run for the following dates: 1/15, 1/22, 1/26, 2/5 no class 2/12 and 2/19 due to Chinese New Year, 2/26, 3/5, 3/12, 3/19

The class is held at the Community Centre Shanghai, Zhidi Edifice, Floor F (4th Floor), Room F07, No. 201 Cheng Jia Qiao Zhi Rd 

Come and join our exciting 8 week class, exploring the world of sewing and fashion! Children will be taught how to design, cut and sew their own garments and accessories.

These classes are perfect for beginners or those with some experience of using a sewing machine, as projects change every term and are progressive; starting with simpler projects before building up in skills.

Every session begins with an introduction (or refresher) on how to use the sewing machine and the children will work on a different item every 2 weeks. 

All children are welcome to participate in our fashion show at the end of the term, with parents also welcomed of course!

The details:

  • We accept children aged between 6 and 12
  • Beginners and intermediates are all welcomed - projects change every term so there will be no repeating of projects
  • Boys and girls are both welcomed!
  • We run the classes with a minimum of 3 and a maximum of 10 children
  • All children will be using a Singer Tradition 2250a sewing machine and full guidance will be given on how to use the machines safely, as well as other sewing equipment such as pins and fabric scissors
  • We have a ratio of 1 teacher: 5 children
  • The class fee covers all materials, resources and tickets to the fashion show
  • If you need to miss a class, we offer 2 catch up sessions throughout the term where the child can join another one of our classes running that week. If you need more than 2 catch ups, this will be at the cost of 300rmb/session.


  • The cost of the 8 week course is 2400rmb. To secure your child's spot we require a 20% deposit, which can be paid via Alipay or WeChat, or you may pay the full price by clicking the 'book now' button below. Please note this 20% deposit is non-refundable.
