Kanyeka Customised Bauble Workshop
Grab your family or friends and get festively artsy with Kanyeka’s personalised ‘Winter Wonderland’ Christmas bauble gift-making workshop. The workshop promises lots of seasonal DIY ideas, and a wonderful merry craft-making experience in general.
Over the course of one and a half hours, you’ll get to decorate your very own Christmas bauble. Add some sparkle or frosty white snowflakes – even some red winter berries – to your creation. Or fill your glossy orb with sprigs of evergreen fir or glittery stars and top it with a beautiful bow. Then you can take your Christmas ornament home or give it as a handmade gift for someone special.
This workshop isn’t just a Christmas gifting experience, but a memorable activity too. You can even decorate and personalise the gift box that comes along with your bauble. All materials and tools are provided; plus, you’ll get helpful guidance and tips for creating your very own ‘Winter Wonderland’ vignette inside your magical orb. All you’ll need is your imagination and a little creativity!
