This year, we felt we couldn’t safely run our popular wreath making workshops. So we are making up wreath kits for people to make their wreaths at home. On Nov 25th and Dec 2nd, we also invite you to this Zoom session with BPCG Volunteer Heidi Sternberg. Heidi will show a short video on How to Make a Christmas wreath and then will be available to answer any questions you have about wreath making.
Our BPCG wreath making kits are available to buy from the shop every Saturday and Sunday 11 to 3 from November 21st.
The kits contain:
A lovely handmade Willow Base
A roll of Florists Wire
Our guide to making wreaths with a link to our wreath making video and to this zoom workshop
A self-selected range of natural decorative materials from our ‘wreath buffet’ of foliage, seed pods, flower heads, berries etc.
In addition you will need:
Some evergreen or dry foliage to fill out your base
Some more decorative materials
Some sturdy scissors/wire cutters/secateurs
Any other fancy bits and bobs you fancy!
You can use the kits at the workshop or take your learning from the workshop to use at any other time. And of course, all other wreath kits and bits and bobs will work fine too.
Book your ticket below. You only need to book one ticket. There are four types: free*, £5, £10 or £15. Anything you can contribute will help us to keep the charity running during these difficult times. You can also donate on our JustGiving Page here
