Wreath-Making Workshop

December 16, 2020 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

- $29

Just added: Virtual Wreath-Making Workshop!

ADULTS

Kick off the holiday season in this workshop where you will create a fresh and natural wreath to adorn your home. We’ll provide basic instruction and supplies to create an 18” mixed green wreath, and you’ll choose from the available greenery to make a wreath that’s uniquely you.

Not only will you create a wreath to enjoy this season, but you’ll leave with the knowledge and components to create a new wreath the next time a Whidbey windstorm graces you with an abundance of greenery. Re-use your wreath form and wire, and this wreath becomes a free annual craft tradition.

We’ll provide:

  • A link to the class, sent out via email.
  • 18″ Wreath form
  • Wire
  • Lots of greens: a bunch of Douglas Fir to be the main base, plus a fun collection of other interesting greens.

You’ll need to provide:

  • Garden clippers and something for cutting wire
  • Solid internet connection
  • Phone/table/computer with video and microphone
  • Plenty of workspace surface to spread out in, and one you don’t mind getting sticky with pitch.
  • Optional:
    • Gloves. Some of these greens (I’m looking at you, holly) will be prickly.
    • Ruler/tape measure. I’ll refer to lengths of clippings, spacing etc.
    • You may want to gather unusual hardy greens, ribbon, or special ornaments to embellish your wreath.
    • Snacks or nibbles. Because why not??!
    • I recommend wearing long sleeves and clothes you don’t mind getting pitch/sap on.

Supply pick-up: You’ll pick up supplies from the back patio at our Park Office at 5475 Maxwelton Rd., Langley. 1-2 days prior to class. We do not recommend picking up supplies in the dark, and be sure to bring a friend and a flashlight if you do.
