Inspired by the beautiful natural elements of this area and modern wreath-making design, join us for a fun, hands-on design class! In this wreath class, students will make and take home their very own handmade wreath, created with oodles of natural ingredients such as (but not limited too) a grapevine wreath base, pinecones of all sizes, larch branches, slices of dried fruit, cinnamon sticks, curly willow, lunaria, rose hips, red twig dogwood, grasses, and lots of fresh pine. Students will learn the tips and tricks to wreath making and provide you with inspiration to help you create your own lush winter wreath with an organic, earthy feel. And yes, you will be making Martha proud.
Please note: In the class students will be using fresh, local pine. With proper care, these wreaths can last through March looking the same as when it was made in November. Students will receive care instructions at class. Wreath-making can be a sticky and sometimes messy ordeal! We highly recommend bringing work gloves (found at Lowes, Home Depot, or Harbor Freight) for handling the pine. Additionally, we recommend bringing latex or poly gardening/work gloves for designing your wreath (thinner gloves makes for easier hand-crafting!). Gloves will prevent the pine from scratching your skin and they will soak up the sap. We also recommend either bringing something to protect your clothing from the sap or a change of clothing if you are coming from work.
