In this workshop we will show you how to turn your empty metal takeaway trays into glittering embossed ornaments with 3D designs inspired by Japanese characters and motifs. They really shine and look lovely hung in a window catching the light. Or you could make a matching set to decorate your Christmas tree. Once you have learnt this technique, we guarantee you will be upcycling all your metal trays into glossy gift tags and decorations.

· A tea towel (not your favourite one)
· Paper and pencil
· A pointed (but not sharp) tool. This could be a chopstick, a knitting needle, or a pencil.

· Ribbon or string to hang up your charm with.
