Natural wreath making workshop

November 30 @ 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm

£40.00 – £45.00

Get festive and creative with this natural wreath making workshop.

During this 2 hour workshop you will be taken through making a beautiful festive winter wreath from scratch by weaving sustainably grown willow that has been pre-soaked. With a step by step guide throughout the workshop you will first craft a willow hoop you can reuse for years to come in all seasons, then use a selection of greenery and decorations to create your own bespoke creation to display at home.

You will get the opportunity to do this next to the fire in our beautiful open roundhouse with warmed mulled wine and apple juice accompanied by mince pies just to get you in the seasonal spirit!

You’ll leave with a beautiful door wreath and be the envy of all your friends and family.

What’s included?

All tools and natural materials are included, along with tea, coffee, mulled wine and a mince pie. If you would prefer to bring something of your choice with you such as ribbon, baubles or bells please do so.

Other information:

This event takes place in a stunningly tranquil, but basic, woodland venue. Our handcrafted Roundhouse offers shelter from the elements with rustic furniture around a crackling wood fire, whilst nearby you’ll find a compost loo and rainwater sink. Hot beverages will be provided on this otherwise non-catered evening, but please bring your own drinking water. As there is no running water or electricity at the arboretum this is a back to basics, almost off grid experience.

Tortworth Forest Centre is a Community Interest Company, working with limited resources. Sometimes we may have to cancel or postpone courses if they are less than 50% subscribed. We try our hardest to keep courses running wherever possible. You can help us by spreading the word to friends, family and colleagues. If an event is cancelled a full refund will be offered.

Planning your visit:

  • Due to the natural pathways the site is not suitable for wheelchair users or those with mobility issues
  • With this in mind most pathways can be slippery and muddy at times. Please wear appropriate footwear and we recommend warm layers
  • Please find detailed information about how to find us, and more information to help you plan your visits here.
