Traditional Handmade Teddy Bears

Traditional handmade cotter pin jointed dense mohair teddy bear

About the Course

Jacqueline's Bears invites you to slip away into your creative bubble for a professional, skill based workshop with a small group of like minded people. During these fun packed, busy workshop mornings you will learn all the traditional techniques required to make traditional cotter pin jointed mohair teddy bears.

Jacqueline's Bears & Duttons for Buttons have joined forces to bring you 3 fabulous bear making experiences. Bear making workshops will be help in the cosy Duttons for Buttons workroom; right in the centre of historical York. These workshops are part of Duttons for Buttons' Heritage Workshops collection. So, not only will you learn the skills and techniques of traditional cotter pin jointed bear making, but we'll also indulge you with some bear making history.

Would you like a little time to step away from your day-to-day routine? Surround yourself with like minded people? Learn new skills and bring home a truly stunning new friend? Never made bears before? Then try our beginners bear making mornings.
