Description

Do you ever browse through Pinterest wishing you could create beautiful homemade cards and decorations? Then this course is perfect for you! Only one hour a week, over six weeks with a creche facility provided on-site. The classes will be relaxed and friendly and each week you will get to take away a stunning papercraft creation!

Every Thursday, 10-11am, 2nd November - 7th December 2017

The course fee includes expert instruction, all necessary materials and crèche service for one child aged 3 months-4 years.

COURSE OUTLINE

Using a variety of materials, tools and techniques you’ll learn how to create gorgeous bespoke items from (mostly) paper and card including stunning home decor projects, handmade cards and pretty gift packaging. After each session you’ll have something beautiful to take home and the skills needed to create more yourself.

WEEK 1 - Hand Stamped Christmas Cards
Introduces basic card making techniques including stamping, embossing & die-cutting. You’ll
create 2 stunning Christmas cards for the special people in your life!

WEEK 2 - Origami Christmas Trees
Learn traditional paper folding techniques to create a set of paper Christmas trees that look great
on a shelf, window ledge or as a table centrepiece.

WEEK 3 - Christmas Crackers
Make your own mini crackers and give your Christmas dinner table the personal touch.

WEEK 4 - Gift Bags & Boxes
Learn how to make your own beautiful gift packaging. You’ll have a choice of gift bags, gift card
holders, and treat boxes to make and take home.

WEEK 5 - Paper Wreath
Create a statement piece of wall art with a rolled paper wreath - deceptively simple but very
effective. Choose your colours to match your festive decor.

WEEK 6 - Light-Up Framed Picture
A really WOW project. Using die cut paper shapes you’ll create a winter scene in a frame,
beautifully lit with LED lights.

Printed instruction sheets and supplies lists will be provided for those who wish to continue paper crafting in their own time.

Class sizes are small, so there will be plenty of opportunity to receive individual help and feedback from the instructor, as well as have a laugh and chat with the other participants.

WHO IS THIS COURSE FOR?

This course is suitable for complete beginners as no previous knowledge is required. It is ideal for parents of babies and toddlers as we provide a creche on-site.

WHAT DO YOU NEED TO BRING?

Nothing! We will provide all paper crafting materials required.

Complimentary tea, coffee and biscuits provided.
