Miss Johanna Venter – Bear-making

14 May 2007

I have started with this acitivity about one and a half years ago. My friend taught me and I have also attended a course in bear-making. I have made 10 bears in total up to this stage. Every bear is unique. I have kept 6 bears and 4 was made for other people. When I make a bear for someone else I have to greet the bear before I make it, otherwise I cannot give it away. I often talk to my bears and rearrange them in different positions. I like to make traditional bears.
