Workshop 1 – Homemade Christmas

14 Oct


£10    with Makers & Creators

7.30-9.30pm The Park Barn, Horsham


Why not show off your creative flair and make Christmas cards this year and save money too?


Personalise this Christmas with your own range of Christmas Cards, Gift Tags and Wrapping Paper. With Annalees Lim from Makers & Creators learn to transfer your own design onto wood blocks to create a series of prints on plain cards and gift tags using a simple way to block print (a relief method instead of carving). Bring some ideas with you or we have some inspiration here to help you with developing your design. We will then learn how to use the same techniques to print on wrapping paper using a rolling pin! You’ll then be able to re-use your design to create multiple prints at home.


Suitable for all Abilities

Materials included in the cost of the workshop: Everything to make the wooden block design plus 6 white cards and envelopes, 6 assorted plain white card gift tags and 3 metres of brown paper to print on as wrapping paper. Step-by-step instructions on a worksheet.

You will need to bring: an old Apron and your rolling pin
