Celebrate the arrival of Spring with fresh seasonal ideas for wrapping and presenting your gifts.
During the workshop the tutor will demonstrate how to professionally wrap boxed gifts including Easter Eggs and you will have the opportunity to wrap gifts of your own.
You will also fold and decorate small gift bags which are perfect for homemade goodies and you will make paper butterflies and rosettes to use as trims.
No previous experience is required.
Scissors, tape and paper are provided for the class.
You will need to bring the items to wrap and the tutor will advise what to bring before the workshop.
