Decoupage courses, multi-day residential découpage workshops, holidays and short breaks in the UK, abroad in Europe and Worldwide. 'Découpage', coming from the French 'découper' meaning 'to cut', these courses cover techniques for decorating items with images cut from decorative paper, illustrations and printed sources and then lacquered or varnished.

Decoupaging tips:
To make things easier when cutting out move the paper rather than the scissors.
   Nail and cuticle scissors are great for cutting out fine detail.
   Try doing decoupage with decorative fabrics as well as paper.
   Keeping your scissors at right angles to your body will allow you to see both sides of a cut.
