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. No prizes for guessing that Christmas is my busiest time but if a Gift Wrapper is not going to be busy at Christmas time, they should hang up their double sided tape and scissors.

The year is full of workshops and fundraisers as well as beautiful papers and embellishments and an exciting new gift wrapping competition. I kid you not!!

The winter workshop season is in full swing and new session dates have just been announced for Brisbane, Melbourne, Sydney and ( I am very very excited about this) Perth!

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 had 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. I am seriously thinking of changing my Christmas colour to pastel blue – delish!

I had yet another wonderful session at the Style Studio series at the Reed Gift Fairs in Melbourne. The Gift Fairs takeover Melbourne in August so it really was a visual feast for the eyes. I met so many lovely retailers 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.

 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 Lane Cove “The gift wrapping night was great fun – not sure how I have survived this long without double-sided tape in my life.”

Suzie C Lane Cove 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!

      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
