The long waited Make a Panda Workshop has finally commenced!
This time, we have a big group of five joining our class namely, Evelyn, Su Ling, Philip, Chio and Paula.
L-R: Su Ling, Paula, Philip, Evelyn and Chio.
you find some of the faces familiar, you are right! They have all
previously appeared on my blog as they attended one of my previous bear
making workshop. Now, they have come back for more!
To improve and learn new techniques, Wayneston Bears introduced this
brand new Make a Panda Workshop. This is an advance class for students
who have made more than 1 bear previously.
Now, students have to even work on 2 different coloured furs instead of one!
Sewing a piece of black fur is not very easy and you will need strong
lighting to be able to sew well. One of the many challenges the students
faced was to stitch the black eye patches onto the panda's face. With
much determination and motivation however, they have managed to overcome
all obstacles and they are almost there! Their bears are halfway done!
It was a fun and interactive group of students. With their previous
experience in bear making, they were able to sew much neater and faster
this time round.
one of the fastest students, Su Ling got the opportunity to first learn
how to create needle sculpted paws and foot pads. Her Panda was the
first one to have fingers and toes!
After half a day full of fun, we had to stop for dinner and continue the
following weekend. The students are all looking forward to the next
lesson with much anticipation and excitement as they can finally
complete their Panda!
