About the Event

Join me for a fun and informal online workshop where I'll be showing you some nifty techniques to help you wrap your gifts more sustainably this Christmas. Forget glittery wrapping papers and annoying sticky tape; all you really need is a few squares of fabric. 

I'll be showing you some of the projects from my book Zero Waste Gift Wrap and giving step by step instructions to several Furoshiki knots and wraps. I'll show you specific wraps for objects such as bottles and books and then more general wraps you can use for everything from clothes, to that one weird-shaped-gift-that-everyone-buys-but-can't-make-look-good! You can join in at home, ask questions and we'll all have a lovely time. 

What you'll need

Squares of thin fabric: approx 50-70cm. Silk or polyester scarves work well as do thin cotton, viscose, and fat quarters

Some books, bottles, tins - your actual Christmas Presents if you're that organised already!

Reviews for my previous Furoshiki workshop:

"Informative, interesting, hosted well. Felt almost like I was in the same room with her.  "

"Loved that it was relaxed. Christine was really natural and easy to watch. Feel inspired! "

"Christine is an incredible host. She knows her stuff and is completely unflappable. The best £5 I have ever spent."
