Are you that person who wraps all their gifts the night before Christmas? Don’t put yourself through wrapping panic again this year! Make it fun – and eco-friendly – at one of East Village’s Holiday Wrapping Parties.
For three Sundays in December, the East Village Experience Centre will be filled with all the recyclable paper and ribbons you’ll need to wrap your gifts. There will also be a special workshop each Sunday that teaches unique and eco-friendly ways to do your holiday wrapping with items like Japanese Furoshiki cloth, magazine bows and DIY fabric bags.
