Christmas Wreath Making Workshop
Fri 16 December 2016, 16:00 – 21:00 GMT
Join Damaris Copus for a friendly and relaxed workshop. Damaris will demonstrate and guide you through how to create a unique and long lasting wreath using your choice of freshly gathered greenery, beautiful berries and seed heads and, if you wish, ribbons or other trimmings.
Damaris has 25 years experience in wreath making. She started by making wholesale amounts of basic blue noble wreaths but quickly became more interested in nature inspired 'wild wreaths'. When not wreath making or gathering materials from woods, hedgerows and meadows, she designs and plants up gardens for family, friends and clients. Her work could best be described as naturalistic. She loves bees, wild flowers and trees.
You will also pick up the following skills:
- There will be opportunity to bend and twist pliable lengths of willow, hazel or dogwood to use as your frame...or if prefered there are copper wire florists frame.
- How to use florists wire and tape to secure your foliage
- Understand design, proportion, balance and placing of 'flashes' of colour in your wreathe
- Gain inspiration to create more wreathes or table decorations at home following the workshop
Damaris has been collecting and drying seed heads and flowers over the past months. The allium heads and love in a mist look especially pleasing. There will be a huge selection of materials available so that everyone can make a true one off piece to their taste. All materials and tools provided. All you need to bring is a good sized pinny to protect your clothes. We will have a break during the workshop, refreshments will be provided.
