Playing with clay...

We tried out paper clay molding today... it was loads of fun and pretty easy ~ even for a complete newbie like myself...
Here's one of mine.

And here are some of the molds we're going to be using during cookie (and clay) class on Saturday...
Can't wait!

Steve Schutt Adventure 2012 ~ February 1-5, 2012

Hello fellow teddy bear lovers! We are very pleased to be hosting teddy bear artist Steve Schutt for a brand new "Adventure" from February 1-5, 2012.

We have an exciting week planned and we do hope you'll be able to join us for any... or all... of the festivities.

Steve will start the adventure off with a visit to the store on Wednesday February 1st from 11-4. He'll be available that day for bear making assistance & questions, as well as general all-around-teddy-bear-camaraderie.

On Thursday and Friday (the 2nd and 3rd of February), we will get down to bear-making "business". The class this year will be a 17" German-style bear, which is available in a variety of colors. The class is priced at $130 a bargain for this sized bear... and your kit will include everything you will need, including the stuffing.

Saturday the 4th brings us a NEW adventure with Steve... molded cookie making! Steve is well known all around Clarion, Iowa for his lovely and delicious Christmas Springerle cookies. In this brand new class, Steve will be sharing his many secrets of Springerle making and even if you aren't a "baker", don't worry, you'll also learn some other creative and crafty ways of using Springerle molds. The class is priced at $30 and includes your very own mold, valued at $23.

Registration for both classes is now available on the website or if you prefer, you can call us at the store.

Our adventurous week will conclude on Sunday the 5th of February as we get together from 12-4 PM for Chocolate, er, I mean, for our annual "Steve and Friends" ARTIST SIGNING event. (Where there WILL be Chocolate ~ THAT's what I meant to say...) We hope you'll join us for a lovely afternoon of BEARS, refreshments and fun!
