I've just finished the sewing the last bear for the Brisbane Teddy Bear Fair held at the Holiday Inn, Roma Street, Brisbane QLD / Australia on 18th September 2011 from 10am to 4pm. My bears and I can't wait to board the plan next Saturday for Brisbane and hopefully will be able to catch-up with many of you. There is still time to book for my workshop YumCha on 19th September at Kympatti Bears, Broadbeach Waters QLD. You'll find more details at http://www.durrerbears.com/catalog.php?item=149&ret=index.php. YumCha is a gorgeous bear to make wonderful techniques to be learned. I would love to have you in my class.
I migrated from Switzerland to Perth / Western Australia in 1990. In 2001 I fell in love with designing and making artist bears and teaching workshops became my passion. I specialise in sculpting and shading to give my bears these cheeky characters. My bears and I have been travelling to many shows internationally and within Australia and we have won many awards. The attention to detail and my love for teaching contribute to the popularity of my classes.
