Find your festive spirit with our Christmas wreath-making workshop at Dalmore Croft. Add mince pies, Lebkuchen, mulled wine and spiced apple juice, festive music, a decorated training room and the wood burning stove and you have the perfect pre-Christmas treat.
In this entirely hands-on session you will learn the traditional craft of wreath-making. Workshop leader Rebecca Makepeace will demonstrate the best ways to create, compose and assemble a wreath, and you will create and decorate your wreath to your own design for you to take home with you at the end of the workshop. It will be made from foliage grown and foraged from around Dalmore including holly, tree ivy, bay and seasonal spruce.
There will be plenty of gorgeous decorations to choose from to adorn your wreath, including pine cones, berries and other hedgerow plants. Your wreath will be the perfect size for your front door.
Making your own wreath is a wonderfully creative activity and a perfect way to get in the Christmas spirit. In just a few simple steps, you can be the proud creator of your very own magnificent wreath!
As well as making a wonderful and timely addition to a festive home, these displays would also make a fantastic and unique present. They are also designed to keep fresh over the festive period, giving you one less thing to worry about when you plan your Christmas.
