August 2021 Lesson Release

Hi to our Paper Flourish Community!
 
We’re expecting all will be well in the coming weeks, so we are going ahead with our August Lesson Release!  We’ve also been very fortunate to get Adriana’s resin workshop back on the calendar (August 21st) after the July session was cancelled due to Lockdown.
 
Please book into any lessons online or via phone, and make sure your contact details are correct, as we may need to get in touch regarding changes to COVID-Safe requirements.
 
Looking forward to seeing you in store soon!
