Studio Stitch, offering art and sewing workshops for children in the Colombo suburb of Wattala, opened a new facility, Studio Stitch Creative Lounge (No 15 Fife Road, Colombo 05), in Colombo 5 on October 16.

The brainchild of Rehana Jaleel, a fashion designer, Studio Stitch started as small-scale sewing workshops at her Wattala-based home. Since then, she has opened four locations, and the one on Fife Road is the fifth. The new facility is brightly designed, with white as the base color and colorful motifs on the walls.

The regular workshops for children include Art Club, where they can try their hand at various art forms; Craft Club, to enjoy making various handicrafts; and Sewing Class, for learning sewing and embroidery. Other activities, such as muffin and bread baking and pottery painting, are also organized in person and online. It also offers sewing classes for teens and adults.

Studio Stitch has a variety of art and sewing kits for sale, takes orders for custom clothing, and provides a place where students can produce and sell their own designs and creations. A portion of the proceeds goes to support women and to provide free programs for talented children who are unable to pay.
