I'm going to do my best foot stomp here and say, hey why can't I book onto one of the following fantastic kids school holiday workshops at the NGV?!

Three fabulous vintage inspired fashion accessory workshops, aimed toward high school aged children, hosted by iconic sewing lounge Thread Den, coincide with the NGV's current Exquisite Threads exhibition.

There are three creative workshops your teens can book onto:

Workshop 1, Wed 1 July: DIY vintage purse

Taking inspiration from the beautiful vintage purses seen on display at Exquisite Threads, your children will create their own coin purse using up-cycled and new materials.

Workshop 2, Thu 2 July: Embroidery experiments

Your teens will learn the age old craft of needlework in this workshop, and experiment with patterns and designs on a take-home embroidery hoop to then admire at home.

Workshop 3, Fri 3 July: Pop your collar

Within the Exquisite Threads exhibition, there are examples of embroidered collars, cuffs, capes and shoes. This workshop again takes inspiration from the exhibition, in which children can embroider their own peter pan collar, which will add a touch of vintage charm to any outfit.
