RÆBURN stands for Craft, Creativity and above all Community – we’re a small, independent company which has grown thanks to your support.
We want to raise a smile and continue to teach new skills, so in these unprecedented times, we're offering the pattern of our most iconic animal mascot, the Shark, for free download here. Simply print on any home printer in A4, sticking the pattern pieces as instructed and then draw around them on any unwanted fabrics, off cuts or irreparable garments. You'll then be able to sew your shark together on a domestic sewing machine or by hand at home - from there get creative on your choice of stuffing!
If you have ever experienced our seasonal workshops, joined for a tour, or stepped foot into the RÆBURN Lab, you'll be familiar with the busy makers energy in our studio. Given the unsettling global circumstances at hand, we are all finding ourselves distancing and ceasing usual operations. For RÆBURN, that also means uncertainty over future events and gatherings. Now more than ever, is a time to focus on yourself and those around you and get creative at home. In light of Craft, Creativity and Community, let's all continue making wherever we may be.
This is the first time we've shared our exclusive #OffCutAnimal workshop documents to the public, in a bid to keep crafting with family and friends, we're doing this for free but if you're able to please consider donating what you can afford to Direct Relief in support of frontline health workers fighting COVID-19 worldwide. We also encourage you to share this initiative far and wide, hopefully giving joy to all good eggs across the world.
Finally, please tag us with your sharks at @raeburn_design and using the hashtag #RaeburnAtHome, and stay tuned as we continue to develop more ideas. Look after yourselves and each other, and let's do our best to keep the creativity flowing! We look forward to seeing your creations.
