Foraging Floristry: Wreath Making
Enjoy a half-day Floristry course at Brogdale Collections Charity, wreath making, and learn about foraging. Make a dried flower wreath for either Mother’s day or Easter this Spring.
About the Day
Begin the day with an introduction to floristry with Holly and make your very own wreath base from natural willow – a fundamental skill to know for future wreath making! You will then be led around the beautiful orchards at Brogdale learning what foliage can be foraged and used in wreath-making. Holly will point out what to look out for, what will stay fresh, and what you can dry at home. After you walk around the grounds, we provide a packed lunch and refreshments to get your creative juices flowing. The afternoon will be spent arranging and creating your spring wreath made from sustainable dried flowers provided by Holly. This half-day wreath-making course is one not to be missed. You are welcomed to bring any unique items you may wish to add to your wreath from home but this is not compulsory. All materials will be provided.
Tools required: Flower scissors or secateurs.
Holly is highly skilled and will be on hand with all your creative queries. Sharing top tips and dried flower advice you will leave with a beautiful spring wreath and a fountain of floristry knowledge.
