There are probably easier ways of getting wrapping paper for your Christmas gifts – but I doubt whether any are a satisfying as making you own particular type of paper!

Hanne had seen images from previous classes and decided she would also like to give it a try.

Riccardo suggested a “Tutti Fruiti” approach, which certainly created a colourful affect  -if “un po particolare”!!

In the picture above – plenty of paint in place – time to mix it all up!

And after mixing gently drag down this handmade “comb” to create “archi” – this is where I feel I need longer arms!
