Not at Hato HQ. We’re encouraging you to get personal this yuletide with some creative wrapping paper making to share with  your nearest and dearest. Using a mixture of collage and mark-making techniques, you will create 10 sheets of A3 wrapping paper, printed in 2 colours on our risograph printers.
