Christmas wreath workshops 2021
Christmas is our favourite time of year so we want to make sure that all our workshops are fun and festive and that everyone leaves with something that they are proud of and makes them smile everyday when they come home to it.
For the base of the arrangements we use locally grown green spruce and Norwegian silver spruce, then we also provide a mix of other foliages to complement these including a range of types of eucalyptus, pine, oak leaves, pittosporum , cotton, birch twigs, pussy willow, thistle, sprayed foliage, plus traditional ivy, conifer and holly.
We also will provide a wide range of accessories, including traditional decorations (such as pine cones, oranges, cinnamon and robins), some more unusual natural decorations (such as lotus seed heads, old mans beard and wooden decorations) and then more modern and sparkly accessories in a range of colours (including a wider range of baubles, stars and lights).
We don’t limit the amount of foliage or accessories you can use and truly encourage a creative and expressive display which ensures that everybody finally design is completely different and personal to them.
We will be running a range of workshops in the first 2 weeks of December ranging from small to large groups in a range of venues. The workshop cost is £45 and covers everything you need including all the moss, foliage, accessories, scissors and aprons, and of course obligatory mulled wine/mulled apple juice, Christmas tunes and nibbles.

The location at an outbuilding at Turvey house and old barn at Newton Park Farm are beautiful, atmospheric old buildings but are a bit more exposed to the elements with toilets in separate buildings and less insulation and heating. There will be heaters and lots of twinkly lights but warm clothes will be advised.
The Harrold Centre and The Navigation Inn venues are most suited to anyone who requires accessible toilets.
