This event was organised by Gardens by the Bay in conjunction with Mother's Day and their on-going Tulipmania floral display.
Gardens by the Bay has invited Wayneston Studios to specially design a Floral Bear with Tulip pattern just for the event.
As the workshop was only 2 hours, some parts of the bear had to be pre-sewn so that all participants were able to complete their Bears and bring them home.
Being a Mother's Day event, we expected most of the participants to comprise of a Mother/Father and their child to make the bear. We were surprised to see more adults attending the workshop instead! Nevertheless, it is very encouraging to know that there are still plenty of people out there in Singapore who are interested to learn to make a bear!
As it was the first time for most of the participants to sew a bear, Wayne and the Art facilitators showed them the basic sewing techniques to close the seams of the opening and string jointing the arms.
The children did the stuffing, while their parents did the sewing. After they completed their bear, seeing all their happy faces made it all worthwhile!
At the end of the workshop, we took group photos with some of the participants.
P.S: Tuplimania Floral Display is currently on-going till 22 May.
