Sew Your Own Textile Creature

Tegan Jenkins beg

This workshop begins with a brief tour of FAC's kids' exhibition 'Hundreds and Thousands'. Taking inspiration from all the colourful, playful works start your own journey into art making.

Create your very own sculptural soft toy while learning simple hand stitching and fabric decorating techniques. Draw up your own creature from your imagination then turn it into your own soft toy to take home. Lots of fun and colourful decorations will be available to customise your creation with.
