A Christmas wreath makes a beautiful, festive addition to your home and you can now create your own in one of our Seasonal Wreath making workshops with ‘The Little Potting Shed’.
The unique and beautiful style that is reflected in the stunning arrangements are taught in this step by step one day workshop. Your front door will most certainly be the best dressed in the street, you may even want to keep your wreath on display indoors so you can admire your own handy work!
The Workshop in detail
Join us for our creative workshop, where you will learn the skills to create your own seasonal door wreath. No experience is necessary as The Little Potting Shed tutor will be on hand to guide you every step of the way.
We allow plenty of time and provide everything you will need to create your wonderful wreath. We will keep you nourished during the class as we include seasonal 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 not have come across before, your seasonal wreath will be finished in the ‘Little Potting Shed’s’ style with a handpicked selection of cones, pods, guords, quince, berries, fruit, moss and more.
We welcome all levels of expertise from beginner to the accomplished.
