What will we cover?

Jane will show you how to re-purpose papers that may be destined for the recyling bin to make your own stylish Christmas crackers, Christmas tree table decorations and hanging stars.

How will I be taught?

Learn paper craft techniques from our friendly tutor in our light and airy studio.

Do I need any previous experience or skills?

This workshop is suitable for beginners including children 12 years and over when accompanied by a paying adult.

Are materials provided? Is there anything I need to source myself?

We will make 6 crackers, and a couple of trees and decorations each and will bring a selection of materials for you to use. However if you have old bits of Christmas wrapping paper, brown paper, perhaps damaged books or sheet music you would like to use then please bring them along. Please also bring 6 loo roll tubes each to use in your crackers.

We will be using craft knives and hot glue guns. If you have your own you are welcome to bring them, otherwise you can use ours.

What will I take home with me?

Your very own eco-friendly Christmas crackers and decorations and the knowledge to make some more!


Drinks and biscuits will be available


During all of our workshops photographs are taken for promotional purposes only. Please make us aware at the time of booking if you would prefer not to be included.
