Sustainable Gift Wrapping
Want to make the switch from paper wrapping to something more environmentally friendly this Christmas, plus you’ve also got lot of unwanted garments or fabric laying around at home? This is the workshop for you.
With over 20 years of experience, Jane Means is known as the ‘Gift Wrapping Queen’! Sustainable wrapping has always been close to her heart and she hates the thought of anything being thrown into landfill. Join Jane as she teaches influencer Shirley Coco about Furoshiki, the eco-friendly art of Japanese fabric wrapping.

Award-winning florist The Flower Lounge and interiors stylist Northern Styling will show you how to add some festive cheer to your home, using some of Burt’s favourite ingredients!
Joined by Interior Stylist Joanne Thelwell of Northern Styling, Sian Wild of The Flower Lounge will create a beautifully natural table garland. Whether you forage for foliage in local green spaces or buy from your local florist, you can follow along and create this beautiful arrangement.
Joanne will also lend her expert eye to styling your Christmas table, using your newly made garland as the perfect centrepiece.
End your day in the most relaxing way possible, whilst simultaneously preparing for your week ahead, with a soundbath mediation class with Lina Ju. Not sure what to expect?
