Christmas Rose Wreath Making Workshop
Wreaths were the first way flowers and foliage were used for decoration. Diane Levings of Full Bloom Flowers (www.fullbloomflowers.ca
) will teach you about the history of wreaths and their design as you build your very own festive wreath with unique greenery and dried pods and cones. She will then show you how to use Christmas roses, Helleborus niger, and other fresh flowers in your wreath! You'll leave the workshop with a gorgeous, florist-quality wreath that would have cost a lot more if you bought it in a florist shop.
Cost: $55 + tax (Includes all materials such as wreath frame and greenery. You may bring greenery or twigs from your own garden to use in your wreath if you like.) Registration is through Constant Contact and PayPal, two of the most trusted names on the web.
We will be in the greenhouse but if the sun isn't shining it could be cool. Please wear appropriate clothing to keep you warm during your time at the Christmas Hurrah!.
