During this course you'll learn how to:
  • use the right equipment
  • personalize gifts
  • wrap a present
  • decorate a box

  • create various holiday-themed gifts
This course is for anyone who:

This course takes the stress out of trying to figure out what present to buy your friend or family member.
 
I'm sure we've all been there, doing some last minute shopping needing to find a gift for an upcoming event not knowing what in the world to get. So, we pick out something generic that could be for anyone and we slap a bow on it and hand it over. 9 times out of 10 that present doesn't get used and just sits on a shelf in your friends house.
 
Now, with this course you won't have to stress or worry about gift shopping anymore because these unique edible gifts can be customizable and are ones that friends and family alike will enjoy and eat up (literally)!

MEET THE INSTRUCTOR

Jane Lyster

Jane Lyster is a working artist who can turn her hand to any made project. After completing a fine art textile degree, she discovered many different materials and media. At the same time, she became a carnival artist, working on street-based art, encouraging the public to dress up and to make each other laugh.
