NEW

This is a fun half day session where Sue will show you how to make a living wreath, one that will last, continuing to grow and develop new flowers and foliage. Certainly not a “throw-away” decoration. Once made, keep it moist and it will stay beautiful for weeks.

You will learn how to create your living wreath (it could even be a table centre at weekend!), using moss, bedding plants and other foraged elements. All materials and bedding plants are included in the material fee and will be provided by the tutor but please bring anything from your garden such as twigs, interesting foliage or grasses or any special items you may wish to incorporate in your wreath.

There is a £15 material fee payable on the day to cover the cost of wreath rings, moss and wire and bedding plants to make a single 12-14inch wreath.

Please note there is no lunch included for this half day session.

What to expect

Time at ArtisOn is designed to take you away from it all and provide the environment, the time and the guidance you need to create. You can expect a warm welcome, skilled and friendly tutors plus the chance to meet like-minded people keen to share ideas and experiences.

There will usually be two workshops going on and we encourage everyone to mingle and be nosey about what the other workshop is up to!

Arrive in time to meet other participants over a cup of tea or coffee and biscuits before beginning your session at the appointed time. There will be a mid-session break for refreshments and a chance to talk over progress with others. All refreshments are included.

Finish time is given as a target – there are occasions when the session may overrun so do let us know if you need to be away promptly.

What you’ll need to bring with you

All materials will be provided but please bring anything from your garden such as twigs, interesting foliage or grasses or any special items you may wish to incorporate in your wreath.

Please bring secateurs and garden gloves if you have them.

“Friendly people, great feed, great tutor and I managed to produce a good picture!”
