Paper embossing, also known as Parchment craft,  is the art of embellishing and decorating parchment paper (or vellum paper) through the use of techniques such as embossing, perforating, stippling, cutting and colouring.

Historians believe that parchment craft originated as an art form in Europe during the 15th or 16th century amongst Catholic communities, where lace-like items such as devotional pictures and communion cards were created. 

In this session you will learn simple techniques to create delicate looking designs. 

This workshop is suitable for beginners. All materials included.
