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.

Learn to cross stitch a felt heart onto 100% wool felt. In this workshop you’ll get to stitch three hoops, in the colour combinations of your choice. This technique is really easy so suitable for beginners, but more experienced crafters will find it really satisfying too. You’ll go home with the project kit, including a template and pen, so you can carry on stitching hearts, for friends and family. Each participant will receive a Cotton Clara goody bag and there will be drinks and snacks provided on the evening.
