Traditional Mohair Bears & Bunnies – 2-Part Workshop for Beginners & Returners – Weds 16 & 23 October 2024 (10-4pm) York

Our gorgeous mohair bears and bunnies are designed exclusively for us by tutor Jacqueline Schultz of Jacqueline’s Bears. You make them using authentic, Steiff Schulte mohair in two hands-on workshop days.

All bears and bunnies have a unique personality, moveable cotter pin joints and British made glass eyes.

Beginner’s use our Milo kit, creating a bear that is 23cm high when standing, 17cm when sitting in ratinee mohair. First time returners make Roxy, who is the same size but with a directional mohair that is more complicated to work with. And those returning for a third time get to choose from a selection of patterns and fabrics to make an entirely unique bear or one of our new bunnies for their collection. During these two full day classes, as well as learning teddy/bunny-making skills, Jacqueline will tell you the fascinating heritage of mohair bears.

This booking includes two sessions and a complete bear/bunny kit, including all the materials you need. A Milo kit normally retails at £59.99 and Roxy at £64.99.

Beginners don’t need any previous bear-making experience but we do recommend you have some 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 in the shop.

Access notice: there are two steps up into our building at 3 Church Street, Ilkley LS29 9DR. We sincerely apologise if this prevents anyone from attending our workshops.
