Who is this class suitable for?
Suitable for any level of experience.
What will be covered in the class?
Spend an evening with Marie to construct an evergreen wreath using a variety of materials. You will start by binding evergreens onto a wire frame, which you will then embellish, choosing from a variety of natural and other Christmas-themed decorations.
You’ll take home your completed wreath armed with the knowledge of how to do it yourself next time!
What do I need to bring?
All materials will be provided by the tutor, but you will need to bring a strong pair of scissors and a pair of secateurs that are capable of cutting wire.
If there is any particular Christmas decoration you want to incorporate into your wreath then do please bring that along too. Fairy lights are NOT included but you might want to buy a string or two of the type that come with their own small battery pack and add these to your wreath.
Please wear appropriate clothing including close-toed shoes and tying long hair back.
Gallery. The Gallery is situated on the ground floor with step-free access.
