Mouse Class Sat 14th October

$120.00 / Sold Out

We are delighted to be hosting toy maker and designer Betty Kogler from Germany, who will be visiting Australia later this year.

After much discussion on social media, Betty has agreed to teach one class of her wonderful Mouse friend, at Cotton Factory. You can find her at @bettis_stitches on social media.

Betty is a skilled Maker, and typically sells her finished products throughout Europe. We are pleased to offer the opportunity for you to create a Mouse of your own.

And the important and unpleasant topic of money and cancellations. Our classes have limited spaces, and there is often more interest than places. For this reason please check the date before you book, to ensure you are able to come.
Class bookings are final and cancellations or inability to come will result in forfeit of payment.
