Memory Bear Creating Workshops (Jan 24th / 31st / Feb 7th)

January 24 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

£30.00

Bring precious memories to life with a Memory Bear keepsake made from clothes of a loved-one.

Join us for a 3 week course and learn how to make a unique item to cherish using clothes or material of a special person that you have lost.

You will be provided with a special step-by-step guide, as well as tea or coffee and biscuits at each workshop.

Items such as shirt buttons, stuffing, cotton and plain buttons will be supplied – you will then need to bring along the relevant clothing or material that is sentimental to you.

The course takes place on Fridays January 24th, 31st & February 7th 2020 between 10am-1pm in The Coldwell Room at Forest Holme Hospice.

The cost of the 3 week course is £30pp and the workshops are limited to 10 people max.
