Raid Granma’s sewing box and make an Unwan Ted
A workshop, The Unwan Teds, aimed at young people aged between 12 and 16 years brings the February half-term programme of workshops at The Ropewalk in Barton upon Humber to a close.
The full day workshop on Friday, February 18, which runs from 10am to 3pm, costs just £5 and during the day those taking part will be using felt, fabrics, beads and buttons to make their very own loveable toy.
Janine Knight, project manager of the children’s charity ST-ART which is running the workshop, said different sewing techniques would be used to create an imaginative soft Ted that uses up all those unwanted scraps and old buttons and ribbons lying about in the bottom of a sewing basket or tin.
“Why not raid Grandma’s button box and bring along some unwanted items and scraps of your own?” she suggested.
The workshop is the final event in a week long programme which this February has the theme of Goldilocks and the Three Bears.
One of the highlights of the week are two performances by the Freehand Theatre Company of “Who’s Been Sitting In My Chair?” a delightful and playful interpretation of a well-known tale – with porridge, bears and chairs.
With original music, this play is for everyone who can count to three – especially if you’re aged between three and seven years.
Anyone going to the workshop should bring a packed lunch or alternatively the Ropery Coffee shop offers a variety of hot and cold food which can be purchased on the day.
