The Workshop in detail
Join us for our creative workshop, where you will learn the skills to create your own autumnal door wreath. No experience is necessary as The Little Potting Shed team, will be on hand to guide you every step of the way.
We allow plenty of time for our creative students to prepare their wonderful wreaths, provide everything you need to create your unique door wreath and to keep you warm during the class we include seasonal treats, home bakes and refreshments as well as a delicious lunch.
Using seasonal, fragrant foliage from traditional spruce or eucalyptus to more unusual foliage that you may well not have come across before, your seasonal wreath will be finished in a Little Potting Shed style with a handpicked selection of cones, pods, guords, quince, berries, fruit, moss and so much more depending on the season.
We welcome all levels of expertise from beginner to the accomplished.
