Avoid that last minute gift- wrapping panic by joining this fun and sociable workshop.
The tutor, Pat, will demonstrate the basic techniques of how to stylishly wrap gifts of different shapes and sizes and you will pick up lots of seasonal ideas for trimmings and finishes.
Then it's time to get busy and make use of the workshop to wrap your own gifts.
No previous experience needed.
Scissors, tape and a basic selection of paper and ribbon will be provided but you will need to bring extra paper if you intend to wrap a lot of gifts.
