Bear Making Course Info

"Bear Making is like actually breathing life into fabric!" "You simply take a flat piece of luxurious fabric and create something magical..." "Every time you repeat the process its different, you simply lose your heart and fall in love yet again and again..."

                                                                                                       Lorraine Edwards


If you are may be reading this wondering if you could possibly even make a bear, let us put your mind at rest, you are not alone many professional bear artists have felt like that at some point.

Nearly everyone our professional artist has taught has bought patterns, books and fabrics, then sat alone at home and made something they wished had turned out maybe a little more pleasing to the eye. 

Each of our unique bear making courses starts with an entirely brand new design. Every design wether it will be a teddy bear or a teddy bear friend teaches you the essential bear making basics required to produce professional collectable bears to either simply enjoy or sell. You are guided and encouraged to find your very own individual collectable mohair bear making style, ultimately enabling you to become a designer of your very own original mohair bears. 

At these bear making courses you will not only have our award winning professional artist 'Lorraine Edwards' help and advice, but quite often the help of other teddy bear making professionals who regularly attend our courses, simply for the pleasure of spending a day creating with other like minded crafters. 


Our bear making courses will teach you everything you need to know about professional teddy bear making, so you can progress on to the designing, marketing and selling your very own bears.

If you choose to attend one of our bear making courses as beginner or seasoned maker we can promise you will never feel intimidated by anyone. All the groups are small and friendly. The advice and support you will receive from attending is absolutley second to none. 

Each of our bear making day courses are held in Telford, Shropshire UK unless otherwise stated! 

Each day course is held in a professional board room setting. The venue is within easy reach of all motorways and close proximity to the railway and bus station with available taxi cabs to hand if needed. Safe car parking is next to the venue. The venue also has its own friendly coffee shop downstairs.

Our bear making course venue is situated right next to a new build Premier Inn but there are many more overnight accommodation possibilities. The surrounding square also has a beautiful park, public house, and cinema and many restaurants.  Please ask if you need help when booking.
