16 Oct 2010 Workshop – SCRAP Wrap w/ Megumi Inouye & Monica Lee
Join us in welcoming Monica Lee and Megumi Inouye as they share unique gift-wrapping techniques using repurposed and found materials. Just in time for the holidays Monica and Megumi have treasures of ideas for gift-wrapping inspired by SCRAP materials. Participants will learn simple and easy to master techniques that will come in handy for any gift giving occasion. Transform toilet paper tubes, bottle caps, twine, buttons and scraps of fabric into elegant and exciting designs to present your packages and gifts. You will never look at gift-wrapping the same way again!
