Gift wrapping workshops

Join me and my wrapping team for a fun filled workshop session where you will learn to gift wrap like a pro. I host scheduled two hour classes in all the capital cities as well as regional centres.

I also offer private gift wrapping classes for girls’ nights out, fundraisers, corporate gatherings and Christmas parties.

There are two different two hour classes available – my highly sought after Gift Wrapping – Learn to Wrap Beautifully and my new class for 2019 – Beautiful Bows and Ribbons designed for Daily Wrap Alumni, those who are confident gift wrappers or those who would just like to sit, wrap, laugh and share ideas with other mad keen wrappers.

The 2019 Gift Wrapping Workshop Program in Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney is in full swing. Lots of wrapping looks, tips, tricks and techniques and of course FUN!

Brisbane Wrappers

There are two options left for my popular class Learn to Gift Wrap Beautifully.  There are sessions being held on Thursday 7 November 7.00pm – 9.00pm and Thursday 28 November 7.00pm – 9.00pm. This workshop covers all the tips and techniques to create beautiful gift wrapping for all occasions and gifts and these two November sessions will have a definite jolly Christmas theme.

I am super excited about my new class Beautiful Bows and Ribbons which was created by popular demand and has been a bit of a hit!  It is all about the bow and gorgeous ribbons from around the world! We’ll cover a range of specialist bows including the Tiffany Bow, the multi loop bow, the double bow and bows to make when you don’t have much ribbon at all. The beautiful bows classes held to date have been an absolute hit and there is one more left this year on Thursday 21 November 7.00pm – 9.00pm with a festive Christmas vibe.

All Brisbane workshops are held at The Paper Empire 145 James Street New Farm.

Melbourne Wrappers – Join the popular Learn to Gift Wrap Workshop one Sunday 17 November  from 11.00am to 1.00pm .

And, excitingly I will be holding my my class Beautiful Bows and Ribbons in Melbourne too on Sunday 17 November from 2.00pm – 4.00pm!  This class is all about gorgeous ribbons from around the world to create a range of specialist bows including the Tiffany Bow, the multi loop bow, the double bow and bows to make when you don’t have much ribbon at all.

Melbourne workshops are held at The Paper Empire 1234 High Street Armadale.

Sydney Wrappers …  The focus will be on beautiful new wraps, ribbons, twines and trims.  The next Learn to Gift Wrap Beautifully Workshop is being held on Tuesday 29 October from 7.00pm to 9.00pm with a focus on Christmas wrapping.

Workshops are held at Hotel Urban in St Leonards. These are the workshops for you if you would like to be considered as one of my casual paid Sydney  Gift Wrappers during the upcoming festive season.

Daily Wrap Workshops are all inclusive. You don’t need to bring a thing!  Just arrive and wrap!! If you’d like to discuss any element of the workshops, please call me on 0418 348 299.

I sure do love my workshops but I also present private two hour sessions – tailored to your needs, your team or the occasion. Actually I would wrap all day if you let me so really any length session is fine by me so long as it is more than an hour.

I have presented at the Style Studio series at the Reed Gift Fairs in Melbourne. The Gift Fairs takeover Melbourne in August so it really is  a visual feast for the eyes. I meet so many lovely retailers every year sharing ideas and inspiration who love gift wrapping almost as much as I do!

But of course, I pop up all over the country with my treasured wrapping paper, double sided tape and scissors meeting lovely people and creating beautiful looks.

I loved working with the sales team at Melbourne’s Light FM – my first all male workshop and it was positively fabulous fun. These gents sure know the value if precision cutting and a crisp fold.

I fondly remember the three fabulous sessions at Blake and Taylor in Paddington Brisbane and I thank the wonderful Ellie for having me there. We wrapped with the scrumptious pastel blues (below) and golds from Vandoros Fine Packaging which you can purchase at Blake and Taylor or other retailers who have a classic and classy eye.

 Supporting Not For Profits:I was at the Brisbane Women’s Club Big Wrap Saturday 12 November donating my time and paper to wrap gifts for Friends with Dignity – gifts for women who are the victims of Domestic Violence.

I was in Toowoomba at Queens Park Markets Frog Hollow Margaret Street on Sunday 20 November wrapping in support of St Vincent’s Hospital. Come down, say hello and wrap with me.

Such Fun
Gift Wrapping is creative,social, thoughtful and fun.
From Sue M  “The gift wrapping night was great fun – not sure how I have survived this long without double-sided tape in my life.”

Suzie C   I loved the gift wrapping night lots of fun and learnt heaps of different ways to use beautiful paper.”

All the elements of a fun Christmas workshop – paper, wine, cheese, gifts. Thanks to the team at Avant Insurance for having me!
Thank you image to our wrappers at a July session featuring the Chalkboard look we worked on. The somewhat dubious figurine is the oddly shaped gift we all wrapped.

    Kind Regards
    Ann 🙂

    1. Dear Ann
      Lovely to hear from you. We do schedule longer workshops on weekends. I can let you know when the next one is. You mentioned it takes quite a while to travel. What town/suburb do you live in as I do like to change my venues from time to time to be closer to some people.
      Kind regards

  4. Will Armadale be the only workshop in Melbourne, or hopefully the next one is in a different location. I live 1 hour north of Melbourne (Tallarook ). Armadale is to far away for me to go to attend the workshop. 🙁

    1. Good Morning Sharon
      At the moment the workshops are all in Armadale but I can certainly look around for something north of Melbourne. I agree too far to travel for you. The main consideration is a venue as I bring everything else with me. If you have any venue suggestions, let me know. Kindest regards Vivienne
