Festive Wreath and Christmas Corsage Workshop

Friday 7th December 2018 – 9.30am

Join us for our annual ‘Christmas Floral Workshop’ followed by a delicious 2 course lunch.

Following the hugely popular floral Christmas decoration workshop last year, Amanda Randell and Phillip Corps return this year to teach us how to create an elegant Festive Wreath to decorate our front doors by using traditional methods of hand tying the wreath and not using oasis which keeps us in line with our pledge to make our events more sustainable! Following the wreath, we will also have a chance to make a ‘Christmas Corsage’ with a magnetic back to decorate your festive outfit or hat this Christmas! All materials will be supplied but if you would like to bring any of your favourite feathers or embellishments along to add to your corsage you are very welcome to.

All the equipment, materials and foliage you need will be provided.
