29 October 2018 • Paper Xmas Decorations using recycled materials

I enjoyed a lovely day learning new techniques with paper. The tutor was calm and patient; very willing to share her wealth of ideas and strategies with us. There was plenty of room at the venue to work on our creations, with our materials spread out. There was an atmosphere of camaraderie and sharing (of materials and ideas)- fostered by the tutor and taken up by the participants. It was the perfect time of year to be beginning with Christmas decorations. I'd highly recommend this class.
