Teddy Bear Making Class
This series of 5 classes teaches Teddy Bear Artistry and starts March 6 and runs for five weeks, every Wednesday afternoon from 1-4:30
You will learn to make a teddy bear out of a recycled fur coat, memory fabric or mohair. Mohair fur is processed from angora goats and is used in Artistry Teddy Bear making.
You will learn how to correctly cut the fur, set in glass eyes, use joints so the head, arms and legs move. Also, you will embroidery the nose and sew it shut correctly.
This series is five classes (one each week) with some homework. You will learn to baste correctly and will sew on a machine. If you don’t have a sewing machine one will be available. Pattern, eyes, joints, backing included. You will need to purchase your fur and stuffing. All specialty tools will be available for use.
Julieanne Pitts, Teddy Bear Artist, will teach the classes. She is a Certified Teddy Bear Artist by Spare Bear Parts. For 15 years Julie traveled the teddy bear shows, teaching and selling Teddy Bears and supplies.
Julie will be in contact with you to discuss your fabric of choice. If you do not have an old fur coat to upcycle, she does have a limited supply of coats for purchase and she also has mohair for sale. Your fabric and stuffing is in addition to the class. The class runs from 1-4:30 over 5 weeks.
