Make A Donut Garland With Me in Edinburgh This Friday

The Super Cute Book of Kawaii has been out for over a month now. To celebrate, I’m doing a little drop-in workshop at Hannah Zakari in Edinburgh this Friday 16th August.

Make A Donut Garland With Me in Edinburgh

It’s a quick and easy drop-in workshop where you can create 1-3 cute donuts to hang as a garland or use to decorate a card, notebook etc. Turn your donuts into cute animals or add happy faces and lots of sprinkles! All materials and supplies are provided including pre-cut donut shapes and decorations so just turn up and join in.

I’ll also have signed copies of The Super Cute Book of Kawaii with free limited edition bookmarks. Making donuts is free if you buy a book, otherwise it’s pay what you like (suggested price: £1 per donut). Hannah Zakari also stock a big range of my products, alongside loads of other amazing designer/makers, so you can do some shopping too.

There’s more info on the Facebook event page. Do note your interest if you might come along so we can make sure there’s enough supplies and surprise treats! (and so I don’t panic that no-one will turn up…)

PS. If you can’t make it, the full tutorial is in my book!
