Get your home holiday season-ready by learning how to create an incredible native floral wreath.

At this morning workshop, you'll be shown how to design, style and construct a beautiful wreath using fresh native foliage and watercolours. You will be given all the materials to create a stunning natural wreath using foliage and buds that will dry out to last the whole festive season. The wreath will be complemented with folded paper and watercolour flowers made on the day. You will be shown how to apply branches to your hoop and two floral techniques which you can customise to your own aesthetic.

The finished wreath is a perfect gift or great decoration for your own home. No previous experience is necessary as we will guide you every step of the way.

*As this is a Saturday event there will be no creche available.
