Reviews: Gift wrapping courses

The day was fantastic and Arona really helped the group to grasp the tricky skills involved in the training. The sessions were Pacey and Positive and the Team Members gave me excellent feedback saying they had aquired a new skill they could really put into practice.Beccy Roberts-Beardsell, Learning & Development Advisor, Selfridges & Co, Manchester Trafford

You are the best Arona!  Thank you very much.  A great two day’s work.  What more can I say – excellent.  She is very talented and you learn lots.  10 out of 10!Michael

I returned to Brighton for a second gift wrapping course with Arona. It had been a year and I knew exactly what skills needed to improve. The day was full on and by 3 pm my head was filled with so much information but Arona made the work enjoyable and fun……even when she asked me to remake a bow several times! This is the key to the success of a private course. You have to totally concentrate, take it all in and listen to Arona’s words of wisdom. Her passion is definitely infectious. I came away exhausted but full of new skills and advanced gift wrapping techniques to use in my store. Judy, London

Just want to drop you a line to say how lovely it was to meet you yesterday, and how much we enjoyed the course.  I couldn’t sleep last night because I had all these ideas running through my mind as to how I could/should wrap various items! Clare

This was my best birthday present! The course was excellent, very inspiring and creative.Julie

Excellent! The demonstrations were very clear and the instruction was very informative, especially for the older person.Margaret

Your Gift Wrapping course was excellent today.  I enjoyed it and you were so helpful, kind and patient.Kam

I was given the course as a birthday gift. What a great idea! I loved it. A really fun way to spend the day with my sister-in-law. Very relaxed and something very different.Emma

Many thanks for the course.  I thoroughly enjoyed the day and my beautifully wrapped items were safely transported back to N.Ireland where they have been much admired.  I have had lots of ideas about how to use my new skills.Pat

Many thanks for such a super course which I enjoyed very much.  I think your had the balance right – it was extremely well set up and nicely informal.  It was also good fun and there was certainly plenty of humour. My husband was most impressed  with my beautifully wrapped ‘gifts’.  The cellophane one caused him to say ‘it’s like Harrods’!Margo

A very big thank you for our totally enjoyable day last week- we loved it.Penny

I wanted you to know how much Mum and I enjoyed our day spent with you and thank you for being so such an inspirational, creative and fun teacher. Since we attended your most fabulous course, Mum has produced the most wonderful bows and wowed us with her decorations while I tackled awkward shapes with vigour. Sometimes the wrapping even bettered the gift but the overall result was a lot of oooing and aahing when finally delivering gifts at Christmas – a proud moment.  My Mother-in-law was amazed by our creations and stunned by the pouch technique – an historic moment in our family history!

I found the course very helpful and look forward to putting my new skills into practice.Jessica
