Festive Paper Lantern Making
Festive Paper Lantern Making for an oriental Christmas theme, once you learn how to make one you can make hundreds…..lanterns can be taken home and lit as alternative Christmas lights! Christmas Food Decorations made from food ‘passed its sell-by date’ great for issues around recycling and waste! Sculptures make ideal alternative Christmas tree decorations for outside the home!
Victorian Christmas Cards
Rediscovering the forgotten art of the handmade Victorian antique Christmas card, using authentic scraps and decoupage printed papers. Workshops, where the entire family can create, and take home unique Christmas gifts. The perfect indoor activities for the festive season!
All the above are ‘clean family workshops’ (no paint, glitter etc. and just a little glue) with the minimum of mess.
A new seasonal make n' take workshop from U.C. Forget the expensive wrapping paper and banal Christmas chintz, this is a chance to create your own gift boxes in all shapes and sizes, and the best thing is you get to take them home!! The workshop is relatively mess free using non toxic chalk pens and featuring the bespoke design work of acclaimed professional artists U.C.
Prepare for "Boxing Day" and give your Christmas a creative alternative twist this year!

"We had a fantastic day on Saturday and I simply cant recommend U.C, highly enough, their friendliness and professionalism is second to none. We had extremely changeable weather conditions, but they persevered with such a positive attitude, they are a pleasure to work with and I will hope to do so again in the near future."

“What the both of you shared with the people during The Singapore Arts Festival 2003 was nothing less than superb. Definitely a chance of a lifetime that doesn't come around often, and very much an eye opener to what art is all about. I guess we were all grateful for the opportunity to get down on our knees, decorating the streets, bringing it to "life" it has been lots of fun being your liaison officer, hope you enjoyed your stay in Singapore, and we'll be more than happy to have your artists back. Keep up the great work!”
