Join ArtisOn regular and papercraft enthusiast, Gilly Knowles, for a half-day session of festive fun making paper-based, plastic free Christmas decs. Save money and feel good about reducing your Christmas consumption …then consume a lovely ArtisOn lunch!
You’ll make three stunning paper creations that can be repeated again and again at home using easily sources materials. Make two impressive hanging decorations – a large 3D folding star and a stunning papercut pendant decoration. Then a smaller scale paper star garland will add to your collection.
These decorations can feature at the heart of your sustainable Christmas and help to reduce the cost and waste we’re all attempting to avoid this year! You’ll go home with the skills and techniques to make decorations, and perhaps help the planet even further by recycling last year’s Christmas wrap collection.
All this, followed by a two course festive lunch before you head home in the mood for Christmas!
Please note there is a £5 materials charge for this workshop payable on the day.

What to expect
Time at ArtisOn is designed to take you away from it all and provide the environment, the time and the guidance you need to create. You can expect a warm welcome, skilled and friendly tutors plus the chance to meet like-minded people keen to share ideas and experiences.
There will usually be two workshops going on and we encourage everyone to mingle and be nosey about what the other workshop is up to!
Arrive in time to meet other participants over a cup of tea or coffee and biscuits before beginning your session at the appointed time. There will be a mid-session break for refreshments and a chance to talk over progress with others. All refreshments are included.
Finish time is given as a target – there are occasions when the session may overrun so do let us know if you need to be away promptly.
What you’ll need to bring with you
All materials will be provided but if you want to bring any good quality seasonal wrapping papers feel free..
Please dress to get messed up - risk of glue!
