In these fun wreath making sessions, you’ll create a festive Christmas wreath to take home, complete with evergreen foliage, sliced oranges, fir cones and a gorgeous ribbon.

Everyone taking part will be provided with a pre-mossed wreath ring and a bundle of foliage with instructions on how to cut and wind the foliage to the wreath ring. Amanda from My Little Flower Boutique will be on hand to assist and advise. 40 minute sessions running all day – just drop by to try it out.  Ages: adults and children (with adult supervision)

There will also be fresh and faux, pre-made wreaths available for sale, alongside DIY wreath kits and winter-themed hand tied bouquets.
