Melbourne’s felt queen, Cat Rabbit, is gracing us with her fuzzy presence and needle knowledge in this four-hour plush character workshop for adults.

Cat will walk you through the process of transforming a 2D sketch into a soft 3D friend. First you’ll draft your pal on paper with guidance from Cat on developing a character and adapting it to an existing template. Next, the pattern is cut with felt and proper stitching techniques are outlined.

And then comes the fun part – accessorising your little buddy to the nines. Express its giant personality with tiny handmade goods – an aviator? A baker? A bird watcher? This class is for those with a fondness for felt and basic sewing skills. Plush kits are provided, but participants are asked to bring their own fabric scissors. Delve into Cat’s fluffy mind, explore the wonders of felt, and you’ll leave with a mini companion all your own.

Please note: This class requires at least five students to run. In the unlikely event that we don't get this number of students, we'll cancel the class and fully refund you and inform you via email, so please watch your email a few days prior to the class



Aside from this class, Work-Shop also has the following coming up:



What you'll get
  • A new plush friend bursting with personality

What to bring
  • Fabric scissors

  • A love of felt

Suitable for

This class is a great indoor activity idea for a birthday, hens party, team building activity, corporate event, bucks party or Christmas party.

This would also be a great Mother's Day gift idea.

Cat was a great and approachable teacher. The class was really helpful and definitely needed if you want to make your own felt buddy. I would recommend this class to anyone who’s a fan of what Cat Rabbit makes. I love my little hippo!
