About the Course

When making a basic toy you normally know what the outcome will be. But in this creative workshop you'll have to see "who shows up". When I completed my Embroidery Diploma with a toy made in a special way, I couldn't have foreseen the end result. It's astonishing that even when I'd learned so much, the end results could be surprising or take my breath away. If you've made a soft toy before, the middle part of this workshop will be familiar to you as you make a basic body. But the beginning and finishing will not be familiar as you learn to trust the process of what you're doing.

In this workshop you'll learn how to build basic skills into a unique 'being' or toy. You only need bring two items with you: your sewing machine and a tie, or scarf, or glove, or piece of fabric (at least 25cm x 15cm) etc:- a treasured item that will be an integral part of your toy, forever treasured for the memories it invokes. This toy may be a special gift to a friend, loved one, family member or kept by you.
