Course description

On this creative course we will delve into the exciting world of all things crafty – using card, paper, glue and scissors. You will build on existing skills or learn completely new ones as we measure, cut, fold, glue and embellish our projects

On this fun-filled creative course you will build skills in:

• Use a ruler to accurately measure card and paper

• Recognise why this is so important in paper crafting

• Recognise ‘valley’ and ‘mountain’ folds

• Which paper for what – weights and uses

• Glue – does it matter which one you use?

On this course you will be introduced to a number of projects that come under the paper-craft banner. After completing this course you will be able to take the skills learnt and build on them further by enrolling on more crafty courses such as ‘Delve into Decoupage’ and ‘Calming collage,’ or maybe ‘Easter Cards and Crafts’ would be more your thing. There are also several card making courses on offer that will really build up your knowledge and skills and save you money, as you will never have to buy a greeting card again.
