I made the first ones for sale, already 20 years ago. I draw each teddy bear and name them. I then design the pattern, and make them by hand, with a lot of patience and love. I knit and sew everything from scarves, sweaters, vests and the like. by hand. All my bears are labeled: Aarset Bear and my name.
I got my education from; Agder school of art and design, and as a private in sewing, shaping, textile and design and pattern design.
It is wonderful to live in a daily interaction with wonderful textiles, painting mediums, creative tools, clay, and lively teddy bears, who can think of directing the day, in their favor, whatever I may think. Some of their friends are constantly showing up, who want their say. Then I have the process going on, and different personalities are created, among other things.
