Today I attended the More Pretty Things 'creative gift-wrapping course' with 2 friends and we all thoroughly enjoyed the event.

Jo was very warm and welcoming and her expertise and teaching skills are second to none.

The hotel was set in beautiful grounds and the food was excellent.

I would definitely recommend this course.


Attended this creative gift wrapping course with More Pretty Things today and I am still buzzing. Everything was spot on - the venue was idyllic and the food was fantastic. However, my ability to gift wrap is amazing - it's a good job it's Christmas. Jo is incredible. Her skills are second to none, her patience is unlimited and her tutoring is excellent as she was able to manage a group of people with different abilities and increased all their skills. The confidence she inspires is rewarding.
I would definitely recommend this course to anyone and can't wait to attend the next one - after I've practised over Christmas.
Thank you very much.


Huge fun......Jo is a lovely lady who passes her (considerable) skills on with enthusiasm, patience and tact. It was very relaxing and friendly and the time flew by. I would definitely recommend this course to anyone, it would also make a great friends day out/present.


Great Day and venue spent with Jo teaching us how to wrap the perfect present absolutely loved it cant wait to do the next one.

would recommend to anyone for an enjoyable day

Thanks Jo


Jo is a fabulous, friendly hostess who provides excellent tuition in the art of gift wrapping. A thoroughly enjoyable and relaxing way to spend a day learning a new skill resulting in a perfectly packaged parcel!


What a fantastic way to spend some quality "me time".....great hospitality, tasty cakes and learning a new skill!
Jo is the perfect hostess and extremely competent in her ability to pass on her gift wrapping tips.
I would highly recommend these courses to anyone.


I am soon to take part in another course - the first was excellent so had to enrol on a second. Jo is a superb instructor and the quality of the materials were also excellent. I cannot wait to join her again in Ripon.


What a fantastic course and a wonderful lady! Thoroughly enjoyed the gift wrapping workshop, learnt so much and would now class myself as a super wrapper ;-)
Thanks so much Jo, will definitely be coming to another class soon.


Jo's courses are wonderful and relaxing, a love treat. Highly recommended.


I have been on two of Jo's courses, the beginners and advanced one. ( We called it advanced, Jo said it was another wrapping course, but we preferred the idea of being advanced wrappers). Both were very relaxed, friendly but professional at the same time.

She advised us of potential pitfalls of the items we were wrapping and gently guided and advised us through the day.

I returned home with presents that wowed my family, who now demand help with gift wrapping for special occasions. I would have never been able to do this without the help of Jo.

I have recommended these courses to all my family and friends, who have thoroughly enjoyed the occasion themselves.


Jo who provides this course is just the most lovely, patient tutor and obviously totally comfortable and skilled in the gift-wrapping arena. She was a wonderful hostess which added to the ambience of the occasion, enabling all those attending to be relaxed and simply enjoy the experience.

My friend and I returned home with three beautifully gift-wrapped items, which would not have looked at all aesthetically pleasing, without Jo's guidance. In just a few hours we learnt new skills that will benefit us for years to come!

I would totally recommend this course to anyone.
