Hi folks – Would you like to make a unique and beautiful winter wreath in an fun and informal session? and do you want it to be environmentally friendly and a bargain?? AND would like to support your local community garden at the same time?!?
Well you’re in luck! because we’re back with our lovely and friendly wreath making workshops!
Between 10am-4pm Saturday 2nd December and 10am-2pm Sunday 3rd December
Come along by yourself or bring friends and family and get creative and have a jolly time 🙂
Each wreath costs £25/£15 and it takes about an hour. You’ll learn how to weave a willow hoop and then be provided with everything you need to decorate it with gorgeous natural foliage.
Every wreath is different and they always turn out beautiful.
Children are welcome and booking is essential
This workshop is mostly outdoors and in very well ventilated polytunnels so WRAP UP WARM!
The garden is on the allotments at the end of Monk Rd BS7 8NE and our site and our toilet are wheelchair accessible.
