Guided by artist Michelle Jahn you will re-purpose all sorts of paper to decoupage your own tray.
Decoupage is all about cutting out paper, arranging and pasting the cut-outs onto timber, metal or glass. Step by step Michelle will assist you to plan your design and then decorate your tray. By the end of the session you will have learnt a range of decoupage skills and gained interesting ideas to try out at home. We supply you with a tray on the day.
