The festive season is nearly upon us, and with it comes the unavoidable seasonal insanity; Christmas CDs on loop, bearded men inviting you to sit on their knee, unnecessary amounts of tinsel, and industrial presses methodically churning out packs of generic greetings cards. 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.
