The gorgeous wreath above was made last year by one of our students, Leslie Marshall, during this very hands-on wreath workshop. In this class you will learn how to make holiday garden wreaths using landscape trimmings available in your own backyard! The wreath is a symbol of continuity and renewal, a leafy green reminder of summer that pulls our homes and spirits through the depths of winter. Once you master the art of making wreaths, you will be happy to add it to your list of holiday traditions.
We will explore wreath construction in multiple phases: base, body, and decorations. You will start with loose landscape prunings and end with holiday masterpieces! Incorporating wreath-making into your yearly garden cycle also helps reduce your carbon footprint by replacing store-bought decorations with lovely, handmade ones. Woody herbs like rosemary, lavender, or bay laurel make especially fragrant and beautiful wreathes. You will never look at your landscape waste pile the same way again!
