CLASS 1  I am a Teddy bear made in the pre 1950 style. I am not dressed but was always kept warm in bed. In periods of war in the world, mohair and other expensive fabrics were not available. Many of my friends were made by parents for their own children from fabrics available at the time. I was made to be cuddled and parts of me may now show how much I was loved. I am over 10 inches (25 cms) high but less than 14 inches (35cms).

CLASS 2  I am a Teddy bear and today I am fishing. I am wearing my comfortable fishing clothes and have my fishing rod and basket for all the fish I may catch. Being a dedicated fisherman I may have a chair or a cushion in case I need a sleep while the fish ignore me. I could even read about the one that got away. It’s hard work all this fishing but what else can a bear do? No size is stipulated.

CLASS 3  Well my name is Tina and I can teach these aged Bruins a thing or two. Fishing indeed! I am a rock chic bear, I am standing and I am 12 – 16 inches tall. I was born around 1990 and I’m into fashion and music. Bring it all on!

CLASS 4 I am a soft sculpture. I am a character bear of any size but I am very detailed and not made to be hugged. I am likely but not essentially, to be made with mohair or another natural fur fabric. With me I have one or more of my actor friends who are also character bears.  Accessories will be needed to complete the tableau.  We are taking part in a play. The play is based on:

“The Wind in The Willows”

CLASS 6  This Class is for artists entering a competition for the first time.  Competitors who entered the First Time Competitors Class last year but did not win any award may also enter.   A dressed and/ or accessorised bear between 10 and 12 inches tall, you may use any fabric you choose but the difficulty of working some fabrics will be taken into account. The standard in this Class is very high.  It could be won with a “non-fur” base fabric but probably more advanced design and artistic flair would need to be shown.
