My son did the young thrive club and had the most amazing time. At 14, he's very interested in thew sustainable fashion design, and Astrid provided exactly the kind of class that we have been desperate to find. She is an incredible teacher, and James can't wait to return.

Aisha Mohammed - 11 January 2023
My daughter attended Astrid's classes and she loved it, a few years later I decided to follow suit and registered. I had never used a sewing machine before and here I am 6 weeks later with a completed wearable kimono style jacket and I absolutely love it. Signing up to the classes with Little Hands Design was the best decision I have made for investing into myself. Astrid's way of teaching allows for everyone else in the class to also help and share their own ways of learning. By my final class I was also able to help a fellow class mate and it was the best feeling! It was so much more than learning, it was growing, evolving and sharing amongst such a beautiful, dynamic and diverse group and a most wonderful teacher. I hope to continue on this exciting journey with Little Hands Design!

Wonderful classes that teach proper sewing for my budding young clothes designer - a Marc Jacobs in the making …
Sarah-Jane Gamble - 11 January 2023
This is a wonderful class for children who are passionate about sewing, design and to be a sustainable being in this world. Sewing classes for children are so hard to find in London and Little Hands is an absolute gem. My son aged 10 made his own jacket after just one term at Little Hands.
