This afternoon we led a workshop making Christmas Wreaths with Hertswise in Letchworth. We had a great time and made some glorious decorations, some wreaths and some table pieces. We had worried that we wouldn’t have enough greenery for the group but there was a mountain of lush leaves – all sorts of shapes, sizes and shades of green. The room smelled fabulous, especially with the sprigs of herbs and the fir tree twigs. Now we’ve all got a bit of the Christmas spirit!
This is a great workshop to run. It is very sensory and a lovely way to engage with the outdoors while keeping warm on a winter afternoon. It is also adaptable for any level of skill and even those that had never done anything like this before made something beautiful. The table pieces are good for those who are not so dextrose with the oasis making it really easy to create stunning displays that will last for the Christmas period and more.
At the end of the afternoon we all had something to take home and show off to family and friends – perfect!
