gift wrap demonstrations and seminars
Whether for a corporate branding event celebrating the power of the artisanal, a company bonding activity during the holiday season, or a focus of interest for an intimate gathering at a women's luncheon, a presentation/demonstration by Wanda Wen, Soolip's Co-Founder, self-proclaimed paperphile and author of The Art of Gift Wrapping, a Random House publication, is an experience like no other. She, along with her team, can transform any everyday object and box into a beautiful and moving piece of art. Learn from the expert herself how an average gift can be enhanced and transformed into something even more unique than its initial existence.
journaling & bookbinding workshops
Written expression works to open the heart and soul. Ideal for health & beauty resorts, and corporate functions, Wanda will take her guests on a journey engaging the hand, head and heart. Guests will be taught the age-old craft of bookbinding with needle and twine. Armed with one's personally-made journal, Wanda will then inspire her guests to step inside the "self" and explore the heart through creative writing.
live calligraphy exhibitions
Romance your audience with the artisanal form of the written word with a team from Soolip. Imagine a classically-trained, master calligrapher on site at your event, turning back the clock to a time when the written word, ink on paper, plays homage to the time-honored notion of writing with the human hand. Nothing is more gracefully creative than the tactile and visual beauty of a calligraphers stroke on a handmade paper. We can customize a program for your event that will enhance the event agenda, messaging and goals. Shown here are programs launching Lexus' LFA vehicle, where the idea of complete customization, along with attention to detail, were the marketing messages tantamount to the Lexus team.
