About the Course

Do you have a treasured item of clothing that you're just not sure what to do with but for sentimental reasons you've just never been able to throw it away or pass it on. It might be something that reminds you of a special occasion or something that belonged to a loved one you've lost

Why not join us from our day long Memory Bear making workshop and create something truly lovely for yourself or as a gift.

We'll teach you the techniques you'll need from start to finish so that you can repeat the process at home with complete confidence.

No great sewing skills needed but basic back stitch is necessary.

If you prefer to make your bear from mohair, we can provide the highest quality traditional fur for an additional fee of £15

If booking with a CraftCourses voucher for part or all of the course fee, please fill in the contact form above. Your voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.

All of the tools, threads and filling for making your bear provided. If you prefer to make a mohair bear, traditional fabrics are available at the venue
Hand made Glass eyes.
A pattern and instructions to take with you.
A great light lunch bought in from a fantastic local cafe.
All the tea/coffee you can drink with biscuits

Had an amazing day here on Thursday (07/11/19). The course takes place in a teddy bear and doll hospital... Oh my the bears and dolls... just adorable...Rikey who's business it is... looks after you wonderfully and Jo, the course leader is brilliant... patient and helpful in equal measures... I had taken two different items for my memory bear... and we agreed to use the lesser important sweatshirt for my first bear... which turned out perfectly... the more important baby item I felt confident to do at home... but Jo, bless her heart, worked out the best way to place the pattern for me and wrote extra instructions for my next bear.

The whole day... from 9am to leaving just after 5pm was perfect... cannot recommend this course highly enough... Thank you so very much for the wonderful day... As promised I'll send a photo of my completed 'Danny' bear once done....
