I'm taking bookings for Christmas 2023 - but this workshop could easily be adapted to fit any theme or event throughout the year too.
Making paper decorations is a great way to reduce the use of disposable plastic over the festive period, especially when using recycled paper and thread made from natural, sustainably-sourced fibres.
Participants will learn to construct 3-dimensional paper sculptures including a traditional decorative ball called a kusudama, based on a design by the origami artist Tomoko Fuse.
Length: 1-2 hours
Suitable for: Adults and young people age 12+ (I am developing a series of origami workshops for children and families - please keep an eye on this page for updates or send me an email for more info!)

Origami Books Workshop for Children & Families
A children's version of the Handmade Books workshop with a story writing / drawing activity in the second half. This can be adapted to fit a theme - World Book Day, pirates and treasure maps, International Women's Day, fairytales and folklore, local history, Christmas, ghost stories...
Participants will create an origami map-fold book with pop-up pages and a sturdy hardback cover.
Rummage through all kinds of decorative paper, cardboard, thread and ribbon to find your favourite colours and design your own unique cover.
Then the fun part - fill the pages with stories, comics, treasure maps, poetry, or your own designs for mythical creatures and monsters!
This workshop is ideal for family-friendly venues, events and festivals, as well as schools and youth clubs.
Length: 2 hours
Suitable for: children and families - Please get in touch to discuss group sizes and how this workshop can be adapted for different ages, or fit with school activities & the National Curriculum.
