About the Course

This 1 day workshop is an introductory course into collector teddy bear making. The day will go through the key stages in creating an approx. 6"-7" jointed collectors teddy bear with glass eyes and stuffing. Meaning the arms, legs and head twist.

The bears are created with a mix of hand and machine sewing, but no need to bring your own machine as I have one here and no experience of machine sewing is needed.

With your choice of a selection of faux furs and faux suede your bear will be unique to you.

This course is best suited for beginners.

Whilst I aim for you to have the bear completed when you leave this is a very short time scale so if not completed I will be able to instruct in how to progress to completion and offer follow up support online.

Small class size means more attention, however, a minimum number of 2 people is required for the class to run. A full refund will be given if this is the case and the workshop is cancelled.
I also offer 1 on 1 workshops at your request.

Please get in touch to discuss booking into a suitable course date/for 1 on 1 training.

This course is run by Faye of MyBareFootBears. Having made and sold bears online for the past few years I have decided to trial run these courses at a lower cost whilst I gain experience and feedback.

*Please note these bears are not suitable for children*
