Now Showing: Goose The Bear with Ljubljana Puppet Theatre

27 April 2016

Did you ever want to see Big Ted come to life? Well this month in Ljubljana, Slovenia you have the chance to see him walking, talking even swimming!

Friday saw the premiere of children’s story Goose the Bear, the first puppet show to feature Donna Wilson’s wonderful woolly creations.  Goose the Bear is a heart-warming German tale written by Katja Gehrmann. A bear gets more than he bargained when he rescues an egg from the jaws of a hungry fox. The egg hatches a confused little gosling who believes he is a bear, and tries to prove this to his newfound mother the bear.

We feel so privileged to have worked with Lljubljana Puppet Theatre on this project. We hope our lovely fans get the chance to visit. Tickets are still available to buy here.

Ljubljana Puppet Theatre specialises in puppet shows and drama performances for both young and adult audiences in a grand building with 6 in-house venues with almost 1000 seats overall. The Theatre pays special attention to the cultural education and care for the Slovenian puppet heritage.

When you step into the cosy auditorium, you are greeted by our tall signature knitted trees. You will find that absolutely everything from the stage, to the surrounding walls and ceiling is dressed in our brightly patterned lambswool. Look out for the Hungry Fox, the Mischievous Squirrel and of course the stars of the show Big Bear and the Little Goose!

 

 

Donna was so thrilled for this unique opportunity when she was approached by the Lljubljana Puppet Theatre last year. She has been very much involved in the production process from the beginning and even flew out with the family to Ljubljana to check out the rehearsals. Everything has been knitted in our London studio whilst the Theatre’s skilled team of performers and makers in their spectacular workshop made the magic happen on stage. We hope we can take the show on the road soon!

Donna Wilson at London Design Festival 2015

1 September 2015

Hello everyone,

This year for London Design Festival, we present a week-long installation and pop-up shop at Studio 1.1 Gallery on Redchurch Street.

The gallery space will be transformed into a woolly, cosy snug– a peaceful and idyllic hideaway for some quiet time away from the hustle and bustle of design week. We invite you to sit back and relax on our lambswool-lined walls, have a chat with a friendly Capybara bean bag, take a catnap on a comfy cushion, or roll about in the knitted hills and mountains in the land of Donna Wilson. Come take a woolly break with us!

And be sure to stop by our opening night, 6-8pm on Tuesday 22nd September.
Refreshments will be served, alongside Cyril biscuits by the lovely BKD London.
You can RSVP at our Facebook event page here.

Select products from Donna Wilson’s new autumn/winter collections will be available, along with classic pieces from our signature range.
