Who is this for...?
A workshop for adults.
What to expect....?
Our popular traditional wreath making workshops are designed for the complete novice and also those who have some experience. You will spend a relaxed few hours learning how to make your very own traditional Christmas wreath to adorn your door. You will have the opportunity to learn all aspects of traditional wreath making, from mossing the ring through to decorating the wreath to your desired taste. Advise will also be given on how to look after your wreath once at home to keep it looking in perfect condition throughout the festive period.
There will also be complementary snacks, mulled wine or spiced apple juice to enjoy throughout the session and help to get us all in the Christmas spirit. Places on our wreath making workshops are limited to 10 people ensuring there is enough time to spend helping people to create their perfect wreath.
About our wreaths....
Our wreaths are made on moss rings and are created from traditional natural foraged materials such as Holy, Ivy, Conifer, Pittosporum etc, decorated with dried fruits, cones, berries, dried teasels and poppy heads etc and finished with a choice of natural Hessian ribbon.
What to bring with you?
Please bring with you a fairly well fitting pair of gardening gloves or thick marigolds, if your gloves are too big it can be hard to feel your way around your moss ring. Holy is prickly so gloves are an essential item to bring. Please also bring a pair of secateurs that you are familiar with using, everything else you will need to create your wreath will be supplied for you.
