10 Christmas Wreath Workshops
Deck your door with boughs of holly! These local festive craft classes are hugely popular (wonder if the mulled wine has anything to do with that?) so, quick, book now.
Christmas wreaths are a lovely way to showcase the natural resources of the festive season as well as your creative flare – but whether it’s the chance to get artsy and crafty, the unmissable Instagram boasting opportunities or the free mulled wine while you beaver away with twigs and foliage, these wreath-making workshops sell out like hot mince pies.
As such, there’s loads of workshops springing up in the weeks ahead – if we’ve missed any good ones that still have availability, just let us know in the comments box below and we’ll add them to the list.
