Gift Wrapping Presentations & Workshops

I have had several enquiries regarding my Gift Wrapping Presentations & Workshops so, for anyone interested, I thought I would put a word or two about them on my blog.

Gift Wrapping Presentations: here I come into your office, shop, society meeting etc and give a short demonstration (appx 1 hour) of how to wrap gifts simply and stylishly. I demonstrate how to wrap everything from a straight forward box through to a more awkward object such as a bottle or a biscuit tin. I give tips and suggestions eg: the different kinds of wrapping available and where to buy them; what kind of tapes are best to work with and where to buy ribbons and embelishments etc.

A simple and stylish gift box:

Gift Wrapping Workshops: again come into your office, shop, society meeting etc but this time not only do I give a demonstration but you also get the chance to take part and have a go yourselves. I usually start with wrapping a straight forward box and then move on to making more interesting gift wrappings such as gift envelopes and origami gift boxes, however, I am happy to tailor the workshops to specific requirements, so if there is anything you would like to learn how to make or do please let me know.

Gift envelopes, fabulously useful for all sorts of gifts from cd's and jewellery to gift tokens/cards:



Easy to make Origami gift boxes:



Workshops are roughly 2 hours long, though this can be tailored to your needs.
The above are just examples of the presentations and workshops I do but I am happy to accommodate special requests and to tailor my presentations and workshops to your company/ society/group needs.
