Creative Bear Making at Ci Yuan CC, 11 June 2018

Wayneston Studios is honored to be invited to conduct a creative bear making workshop at Ci-Yuan CC last month.


It was a school holiday and we had lots of fun coaching a small group of parent & child to create their very first Teddy Bear.






This is an interactive workshop for both adults and children. It encourages family bonding and communication for both to complete the Teddy Bear together.

At the end of the day, everyone brings home their handmade bears and gave even them a name!




We want to thank  Ci Yuan CC for having us and we look forward conduct workshops with them in the near future!

Cheers,
Wayneston Studios & Team

Bear Making Workshop with Knotty Bicsie!

We are pleased to welcome Betsy and Edda from Knotty Bicsie to Wayneston Studios.


Betsy is a crochet artist and owner of Knotty Bicsie. She is an art instructor and has been teaching for more than 10 years. We have known each other from our common students whom have attended our classes.



We are happy to share our knowledge with Betsy and her daughter Edda on making a Teddy Bear. This is the first time for both of them to try something new. Edda who is 8 years old, learns to stuff and sew an Inuka Polar Bear.



Sewing is not new to Betsy, she is able to master hand sewing quickly. Wayne shared with her the jointing method on her Teddy Bear's limbs and how to make a wobble head.



Betsy is able to complete her Travelling Teddy Bear in one day and Edda completed her Polar Bear and named him Ice Bear.




We want to thank you Betsy and Edda for supporting our workshop and we congratulate them for completing their first Teddy Bear.

P.S Wayneston Studios will be collaborating with Knotty Bicsie to conduct a workshop at their venue, Marinate on 28 July. Stay tuned for more information!

Polar Bear Workshop, 26 May 2017


Ashlyn told her mum that she wants to make a Polar Bear to commemorate Inuka whom passed away last month at the Singapore Zoo.


Ashlyn choose the eye and nose colour for her bear. Wayne taught her how to sew and attach them. She learnt that she needs to stuff the poly fiber a little bit at a time so it's easier to reach the narrow areas on the arms on legs. During the process of stuffing, she switched between using her fingers and a stuffing stick from time to time.






Ashlyn is a patient student, she listens attentively to Wayne's instruction and done a great job sewing and closing the opening of the polar after stuffing.

After the polar is complete, she used black DMC thread to sew each paw lines on the limbs.







To finish off the bear, she gave the polar some bells around his neck.
Well done Ashlyn, we are so proud of you and we hope to see you again soon.

Hugs,
Wayne

Treacle Bear Workshop, 21 May 2018


This week we welcomed Monique coming to learn to make Treacle, the travelling bear.


She love Treacle because he is small and has a cute little wobble head. She also shared with us that this is her third time making a bear and this workshop is a refresher course for her to start this hobby again. Wayne shared with her the basic hand sewing techniques and how to apply ladder stitching to close the opening of her bear after stuffing.





With some extra time given, Monique is also able to complete a tiny leather bag for her bear. At the end of the class, Wayne commented that her little bear has some resemblance to her son!





We want to thank and congratulate Monique for completing another wonderful bear to add into her collection. 

We hope to see you again soon.
 
Hugs,
Wayne
