The Mink Masterclass

An online workshop with me! The videos are broken down into bite sized chucks so you can watch, re-watch and soak up all the steps as you watch me make a mink bear.

I use all the same techniques when working in Alpaca, Mohair or faux fur.  Also included are 3 patterns to download and make yourself. Malt Cadbury and Panda.
