A door wreath is a great way to celebrate the changing seasons. Doors can be adorned with delicate, bulb flowers in the spring, luscious roses in the summer, fiery foliage in the autumn, and of course festive berries in the winter. Our knowledgeable teachers will demonstrate the different methods that may be used to make a stunning door wreath as well as highlighting ingredients that may be most suitable and how best to source them. According to the season, students will make either a spring, summer, autumn, or winter wreath, using a beautifully curated selection of ingredients, aided by the attentive guidance of our wonderful teachers.
Next on the agenda will be garlands. A garland is so versatile in its applications, allowing beautiful foliage and flowers to be displayed almost anywhere. After the teacher demonstration, students will make their own cascading garland, laced with beautiful, seasonally appropriate materials.
