Make a Memory Bear workshops 20 Feb - 8 Mar 2014

Give some old material a new lease of life in these teddy upcycling workshops for ages 7+.

Join artist Jo May to create your very own bear made from recycled fabric. You'll learn how to cut bear patterns as well as sewing and joining skills to make a really special keep-sake. Perhaps you have a favourite old tshirt, dress, pillow case or blanket that you'd like to use?

If you would prefer not to bring in your own material, a selection of fabrics will be provided on the day.
