Wreath Making Workshop
When: Wed, December 2, 2020, 6:15 PM – 7:00 PM
About the workshop:
Whether it’s baking cookies, wrapping the gifts, or putting on a meal for your family, the best bit about any festive season is getting into the spirit of things and making something. Give something new a try, making your own botanic wreath!
Get in touch with nature and collect together your organic elements, then learn the techniques to build your wreath from the base through to the finer details of arranging the finished look.
In this class you will learn how to create your own wreath, layering the different types of foliage and flowers to create the look you like.
You’ll end up with a simply gorgeous wreath to hang on your door or gift to a friend. You might learn some new flower names along the way too!
