What happens in this class?

Learn to create block-printed papers that you can later use for your own art and craft projects, including collage, scrap-booking, gift wrap, card-making and more.

This class has been designed around using materials and implements we all have at home so it’s really easy to take part. You don’t even need to buy special paper: we’ll use magazine pages, old envelopes or any other papers that would normally go in the recycling bin.

Kathrin Steliga - May 17th
This was my first online class and really fun and well structured. Gabriela is a wonderful and inspiring artist. She is happy to share ideas and try new things during her class. The demonstrations were great and we had enough time to prep and practice. There was time to show our own pieces to each other. I attended two classes in her studio before and at the end of the class Gabriela showed us some of her art pieces and we could recognise patterns that we created on our own the same day. I can’t wait to attend the next online class to use my creations to make a collage. I loved this fun class and the gift wrap I created during and after the class that day.
Isabel Losada - May 19th
My adult daughter and I absolutely loved this. We did a one and a half hour class with Gabriela and were so thrilled with our new abilities to be able to make home made wrapping up paper we spent the whole of the rest of the weekend playing with the new techniques we learnt and we are never going to buy wrapping up paper again. Results are absolutely gorgeous. And would cost a fortune to buy. Hand printed paper is us.
