In all our classes we offer a personal approach, limiting place numbers to ensure all our students receive ‘hands on’ training and the time necessary to learn all the techniques. Our small groups provide a friendly and relaxed atmosphere where you can learn with confidence and leave excited to put your new skills to the test, time and time again. Once you’ve been on one of our courses, wrapping your presents will NEVER be the same again.

What's included in the price?
This course includes expert tuition, all materials, refreshments and some items to take home with you on the day. We offer complimentary refreshments on arrival at all our venues and we have a short break during the course for a delicious lunch of sandwiches and cream tea. (Everything stops for tea... even gift wrapping!) Please do let us know if it is a special occasion and you would like some help to organise birthday cake and candle blowing!
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.
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.
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!
