We are on our third year of amazing wreath workshops and they are certainly a favourite for all. (Qualified Florist), Sophie Ayres from SA Floristry, is back to help you create your Christmas masterpiece - a stunning Christmas door wreath - it'll make your door the envy of the street!
There will be lots of gorgeous seasonal foliage and Christmas accessories for you to create your own unique design that has an amazing durability (uses an oasis frame) to see you through the festive season.*
This workshop is ideal for both beginners and people with experience of floral design.
It will cover various floristry techniques which Sophie will talk you through step by step throughout the class.
By the end of the workshop, you will have learnt:
1. How to correctly soak and prepare oasis
2. The botanical names for the products you are using
3. How to condition your material before use for best results
4. How to use and create accessories to make a unique door wreath
5. How to care for your wreath
All materials will be provided, including lots of seasonal foliage, Christmas accessories, ribbons and the odd Christmas choccie! If you want to make an occasion of it and come with friends, you can even BYOB (Bring Your Own Bubbles!).
At the end of the session, everyone will get to take home their uniquely designed Christmas door wreath. The only thing we ask is that you kindly bring along a sharp pair of scissors or secateurs. Also, you may wish to bring an apron to wear to protect your clothing.
Cost: £52.50, includes ticketing fee, light seasonal refreshments #christmasgoodies and don't forget you can BYOB! Oh, and if you book a private party (min. 6 people), we'll throw in a glass on bubbles on arrival!
