Grift Wrapping Workshop
This course includes learning to gift wrap basic shapes well, for example, boxes, bottles/cylinders and clothing.
Following demonstration of the techniques, participants will try them out, learning to cut and measure materials accurately, wrap without visible sticky tape and create different styles of bow to decorate their gifts. There will be an emphasis on producing high quality results offering advice and ideas throughout the session on the use of wrapping materials and gift presentation.
Wrapping gifts for Christmas, birthdays, weddings and other occasions will be a pushover in future!
Are there any additional costs?
No – all the materials (boxes, wrapping paper, tissue, cellophane, ribbon, adhesives) will be provided and have been included in the cost of the course.
What does the learner need to bring to the course? A bottle (wine, olive oil, bubble bath) and a small item of clothing e.g. scarf, t-shirt, they would like to give as a gift and can wrap during the course.
