Traditional mohair teddies - 'Milo' - Beginner's 2-part workshop, York



Meet (and make) Milo, this adorable, mischievous, traditional jointed teddy bear. Milo is 23cm high when standing, 17cm when sitting. In this two-part course on Thursday 1st & 8th December, from 10am - 4pm both days, learn teddy-making skills and the fascinating heritage of mohair bears from his designer, Jacqueline Schultz, owner of Jacqueline’s Bears. **Please note that both days (1st & 8th December) are included in the £155 course cost** Milo’s authentic appearance is thanks to his Steiff Schulte Ratinee 100% mohair ruffled coat as well as his movable cotter pin joints, his British-made glass eyes and his endearing features. This booking includes two sessions and a Milo Kit that includes all the materials to make your bear. Please note, the mohair might vary slightly depending on availability from our suppliers. You don’t need any previous bear-making experience but we do recommend you have basic sewing skills. Classes are individually priced & include the tools to use in class and all materials, unless otherwise indicated. Each participant also receives a 10% off voucher to spend online.
