Materials and Information

If an art workshop could be described as cosy it's this one! On opening this card, the recipent will enter into a warm and inviting festive living room or snowy winter village. Not only that but they will be presented with tiny interactive elements...the sort you might find in the very best children's books! 

In this class, you will learn how to illustrate a festive card with suprise papercrafted parts. At the beginning of the workshop we will learn the basic format and a really simple design which is great if you want to make loads of cards. Moving on, we will add more crafty & illustrated bits and bobs, little books and folded sections. These cards are great fun as it's like decorating a miniature house or a model village! Use the cards to send to a friend or as a beautiful stand up mantle display.

This is one of my special art 'recipe' projects where I show you the basic 'ingredients' and method but there is loads of room for you to add your own special touch and variations. It's a great way to get yourself started if you are new to art, a bit nervous or just want a lovely relaxing project to follow along with!

With loads of tips and tricks, this workshop is suitable for all experience levels!
