April Lesson Release


Hello to our crafty family and friends

Paper Flourish has another great month in April with new classes, techniques and demonstrations, as well as some of your usual clubs and favourites.

***Just a reminder. Please check the product, machine, plates, tools etc you need to bring for each class you have booked in to. Some of the classes (particularly mixed media) do not provide all the product or equipment needed, and so as an attendee you will need to bring your own. This is done to increase hygiene and so the class flows more efficiently, enabling yourself and other attendees to get as much done or finish projects in class time.
As you will appreciate, it is not possible for Paper Flourish to provide a personal ink, paste or other product to each attendee. If you do not have a specified or main item that is needed, you will be able to purchase product once you arrive for the class so please arrive early and give yourself enough time to do this.
Thank you for your understanding.
