About the Course

As recommended in Ideal Homes Magazine!...

Whether you wish to add to your existing skills or need to know the fundamental techniques of beautiful gift wrapping, our inspiring classes will teach you how to wrap your gifts perfectly. Professional Gift Wrapping Tutor, Jo Thompson reveals the tricks of the trade and covers a wide range of techniques including perfectly wrapped boxes, awkward shapes and those all important finishing touches – bows!

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.

Whether you book on your own or with a friend you're guaranteed a great day full of learning and fun. Please see our 5* reviews and if you'd like a special gift for a friend, ask us about our gift wrapping day vouchers.

What's included in the price?

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!

Want to review this course?

This course surpassed my expectations and I would readily attend another. The course was held in a lovely, old stone hotel right next to Ripon Cathedral and the service was very good from the start - both the hotel staff and Jo/Julie. Jo & Julie had everything well prepared and, from the start, Jo gave clear explanations as to what we were doing. The pace was good - in some courses, it can be tedious when waiting for the next step but not on this course. At the outset, we were shown how to wrap a box - that might seem obvious but I learned the tricks as to how to do it properly. We learned how to wrap those awkward shaped presents & excellent & easy ways to decorate. It was an excellent way to switch off and tap into your creative side. I would highly recommend it others and look forward to attending another course in 2018.
