Begin this one-day course with welcome coffee and pastries at Caroline’s nursery. In the cosy summerhouse you’ll be shown how easy it is to create a Christmas wreath via her practical demonstration. Guidance will also be given on how to collect all the plant materials and equipment needed for the task. You’ll then be taken to your own workstation in the nearby polytunnel so that you can start building your very own wreath, step by step, under Caroline’s expert tuition.
While you are constructing the circular base using natural materials, a delicious and warming home-grown lunch will be being prepared for you. Enjoy this in the farmhouse kitchen with your classmates, then return to your wreath to add the foliage, flowers, seedheads and ribbons – all provided by Caroline and Lucy. The end result will be both natural and beautiful. Enjoy home-baked treats and a well-deserved cup of tea as you put the finishing touches to your wreath, then turn your hand to making a festive table decoration or swag. All your creations are for you to take home at the end of the day, and all equipment and materials are provided.
