Jacqueline’s Bears & Duttons for Buttons have joined forces to bring you 3 fabulous bear making experiences. Each bear making workshop will be help in the cosy Duttons for Buttons workroom; right in the centre of historical York. These workshops are part of Duttons for Buttons’ Heritage Workshops collection. So, not only will you learn the skills and techniques of traditional cotter pin jointed bear making, but we’ll also indulge you with some bear making history.

Beginner Bear Making Workshops

Wednesday 13th May 2020 -10am-5pm

Cost per person – £60.00 per person + £25.00 for the Milo kit (MRP £35.00)

Meet (and make) Milo, this adorable, mischievous, traditional jointed teddy bear. Milo is 23cm high when standing, 17cm when sitting. 

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.

You don’t need any previous bear-making experience but we do recommend you have basic sewing skills.
