Christmas Card Workshop – Sydney Course

Give the gift of handmade cards this Christmas for the special people in your life.

In this Christmas Card Workshop, you will create a selection of handmade, impressive Christmas cards for your friends and family. Ideally, you will have completed the Introduction to Card Making course, however, this course is suitable for the complete beginner too.

Techniques may include stamping, colouring, punching and die cutting. Projects will be enhanced with embellishments such as decorative tapes, rhinestones, sequins and glitter.

There is something to suit everybody. Whether your friends love traditional Christmas colours and themes, or embrace funky and modern new ideas, there will be a card they will love in these projects.

All attendees will do the same projects. However, there are some projects where choices of papers, cards, ink colours and embellishments mean that you will be able to introduce some of your own personality and taste into your creations. The only limit is your own imagination!
