A teddy world!



Last summer my friend Tatiana invited me to participate in Teddymir exhibit in St. Petersburgh, Russia. The exhibit's opening was on October 29th, 2015. It seemed so far away that I didn't even want to think about it. However by the end of summer I had a mini collection of amigurumianimals and I decided to exhibit them.

So I signed up! The organizer, Tatiana, did a lot to promote the exhibition. The whole city was awaiting the opening. It was in perfect location, at the artists street in the center next to Palace square. It was also a perfect time since the exhibition continued for the 10 days of school break.

Here are a few participating teddies:



You can choose a teddy or other toy in any style. Teddy Frida and teddy Dali:

Here is an area with large teddies. You can hug them and have your picture taken:

Here is a shelf with my toys:

 

Every day there were teddy workshops. Drawing, felting, clay sculpting and even teddies cupcake decor!

I fell in love with teddies so I took part in a workshop and made one tiny one too! Mine is last:


For both those visiting and taking part in the exhibition there were competitions and prizes. I took part in Tourist Teddy competition with my Lion, Monkey and the Fox and submitted some photos of my toys in well known tourist locations:


This was a great event. If you'd like, you can participate or visit the one next year!

If you are not in the area but would like to participate, your handmade toys can be submitted by mail.
