About Seasonal Wreathmaking Workshop
10.30 am – 1.00 pm
Join Jane Bevan and Katherine Parrish for a morning of special festive wreath making to decorate your home. Natural materials from gardens, hedgerows and countryside will be provided and please bring your own selection too.
We will take a walk around beautiful Whistlewood to collect further materials for our wreaths. If time allows we will make an additional seasonal decoration to pass to a loved one or to decorate our home.
Festive nibbles, mince pies and a glass of warm mulled fruit juice will be served so bring your slippers and prepare for a real treat.
This is a socially distanced event for 6 people. Masks should be worn when moving around the Roundhouse.
