You just want to learn about yoga, yoga is a life-style, not just a series of asanas. For me, yoga is first, but I have lots of other interests – my dolls and bears are top of the list. I love them. They are filling my mind.
Are you Confused about bear/doll making? Come see me.
The Saturday 2pm BEAR MAKING workshop… On arrival you will have the opportunity to cut your own simple pattern based on my template (You can take your patten home and make many bears after the workshop)… you will have access to our house stash of felt, fabric and trims to give your doll/bear that individual touch. If you are interested in making a customised doll or bear? bring in your textile treasures and trims and I’ll help bring your vision to life.
These are our first studio workshops since the big covid lockdown. Our workshops are small, relaxed and friendly but we get through a lot in each session. The toys you make will stand out for their finish and attention to detail and my aim is to inspire makers of all skill levels but also equip them with the inside know-how to produce beautifully made toys too. You’ll go step-by-step through the whole construction process and along the way, I’ll pass on all the things I’ve learned over the past years designing handmade products . You can make your small doll entirely by hand, or you can do the ONE seam on my machine.
– If you’re a beginner, this is good entry level project. You’ll go home enthused and with the confidence to explore your creativity.
– If you are already an experienced sewer but are less confident sewing by hand, this workshop will be a refresher course in some basics and a chance the add to your skill set. I am a dab hand at embroidery, and can help you master the simple stitches which will take your toy “out of the ordinary”. You can even monogram your bear – the first step in making your very first HEIRLOOM BEAR. EMAIL NOW TO BOOK it is not too late. email@example.com
IF YOU DON’T WANT TO MAKE A BEAR, you can always buy one of my hand made, hand stitched and monogrammed bears. These are not Beanie Bears made in China! They start at $165 for a little one. The one on the right is nearly complete – the personality and face to be decided. Hand designed and worked monograms start at $25 extra – you can use this monogram on clothes and linens. A special and individual gift which can be handed down. I will email you a choice of styles, and an example of the monogram. Each one different, each one a work of art, presented in a tissue lined box, and Postage paid in Australia. Let me know the initial you want on the front of the bear.
I can also make tiny ones for Baby Shower gifts, you name the occasion and we can design a bear to commemorate the occasion..
I am out and about picking my greens instead of paying Coles.
The dock, cleavers, chickweed and herb Robert are all bursting into life. We will be looking for these and more on our Sunday FORAGING WALK (about an hour plus a peek at my dried herb stash) along the 5 Mile Creek Walk. If you want to join me (and the weather is kind to us), be at my house at 2pm. 37 Morris Road, Woodend. If it is wet and windy we will postpone to another day.
