Artisan Christmas wreath making workshops- Live online
'TIS THE SEASON TO BE JOLLY', so why not develop a new skill this festive season? In this workshop in a box you will not only learn to create the most beautiful wreath, but you will also learn how to weave the base to create your very own unique Christmas Wreath, from scratch! No plastic or metal frames here, as the simple willow/vine ring that you weave, will be used as your base and then decorated using natural materials, lush foliage, scented herbs, berries, cones, fruit and so much more. You do not need any prior experience or floristry skills, but bags of enthusiasm as you will be guided step by step with this LIVE WORKSHOP to create a gorgeous scented wreath. Only natural materials are utilized, ensuring environmentally friendly credentials and furthermore the base can be reused year on year, season to season. You can decide to keep some of the willow exposed to show off the natural beauty of the twisted vines or you can cover it with evergreen foliage. Either way the wreath will be a reflection of your creativity and taste. Should you prefer a bit of bling, ribbon, Xmas Baubles or even fairy lights, are easy to add. After the season, don't forget to remove the material and pack the base away, ready to bring it out again to decorate for Spring in the New Year.
