Nana’s Patchwork Teddy

  • Workshop

Nana loves to go charity shopping and Nana loves to sew. When her grandchild comes to her with a problem, she knows just what to do. It may not sound like a problem, but her grandchild has too many teddies!

It’s hard to bring them all back and forth between Mum’s house and Dad’s house. This is a story for children who are in such a pickle. Nana’s idea is to make one giant super teddy that will be so cute neither Mum or Dad will be able to resist! Will her plan work? If you would like to find out, let’s illustrate the story together to see what kind of teddy Nana will make.

In the style of Lauren Child we will be cutting out patterned paper decorate our drawings with vivid coloured markers to make amazing pictures for the book that you can bring home when you are done!

There are three workshops to attend at Ennistymon Library in the lead up to Cruinniu an nÓg, and we will show off our book in the library on June 15th. 

Don’t forget to bring your favourite teddy!
