18 Dec Paper Threads + NGV Children’s Festival
A paper couture workshop for the young and young at heart
We think children can design amazing clothes and accessories for toys using paper as the fabric and in this free workshop, children will create a fashion accessory for their favourite cuddly. Inspired by Jean Paul Gaultier and his first muse, Nana (currently on display at the NGV), we’re asking children to bring along their favourite cuddly to design for. Once their outfit is complete, the super-stylish cuddly toys will be able to stop by our red carpet to model for the waiting paparazzi.

Children have a special relationship with their most precious cuddly toy, often named and viewed as a friend with its own ‘personality’ and ‘style’ and we are very excited to have the chance to help little ones create something for them. So much so, in fact, that tiny & little and Meetoo will also be bringing along our childhood cuddlies in their paper threads. We’d love to see your little one and their precious cuddly there!
If you can’t make it, we’d love for you to play along from home too! Snap a shot of your little one’s paper threads creation and share it on Instagram using #paperthreads and we’ll be sure to stop by to check it out. You’ll also be able to see our creations over the coming weeks and tutorials for some of our designs will be coming to tiny & little soon.
Miss Piggy, one of Natalie from tiny & little’s most beloved childhood toys, will be on display throughout Paper Threads workshops, with a special outfit for each day. Kermit will also join her in his paper threads.
Teddy, Kate from Meetoo’s childhood cuddly, will also be on display throughout Paper Threads workshops.
