Hanging Star Books and Other Origami
with Rachel Hazell
proudly hosted by Golden Hare Books
Don't miss your chance to take part in an afternoon of creativity, learning a new skill and (of course) bookishness...
Make a book with pages that unfold into a star and other origami delights to hang in your house or gift to a friend. Use found papers to embellish your surroundings with a literary edge this Christmas.
Tickets are very limited as the workshop is small so Rachel can work with everyone individually! Tickets are £15 which includes materials for the afternoon, refreshments, a goody bag to take home and 10% discount off everything in Golden Hare Books for the day.
