Beginners bear making courses.

I have run bear making courses in the past teaching people how to make their own miniature bear.

I have no more courses planned for the near future but please email me at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. where I can let you know of other courses with another teacher

Below are a few photos from my courses:

Paula and Amy were a joy to have on the course
