Wreath Making Session: A Retrospective

I didn’t have time to report on the wreath-making session on Tuesday right away as I’ve been filming things with green screens, been in and out of work, attended Christmas parties and finishing off a big DIY project (more photos to come on that…)

24 crafty creatures came to our session on Tuesday, ranging from as young as the under 10’s and as old as the over 70s.  We had cinnamon, raffia, berries, dried oranges, pinecones, dried seeds, golden leaves, roses in all colours, blue spruce, cupresses and of course, pearly glitter and gold spray.  The under 10’s particularly loved the gold spray.  Poor Phil had to man the “messy play” table, and try to mop up the spray on the wood panelled walls of the Appleby Rooms.

Traditional lessons in floristry were learnt, all manner of decorative things were wired and 24 beautiful, unique and personal Christmas wreaths were created.  A big hand to everyone who came, you all did really well.

An Easter bonnet making session next?
