Holiday Dry Wreath full

November 10, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

$45

This is a version of a workshop that I learned and then taught in Hawaii, and have taught in Florida and in Oregon for a Master Gardener group.  These are heirloom wreaths, made from dried materials that look the same year after year.

I collect materials all year and keep them dried in my garage, and then we recombine the textures, shapes, and colors into a 12 , 14, or 16 inch wreath base.  They do need to be stored in a dry place, and are best used inside or in a very protected spot outside.  Some students find them so attractive that they leave them hanging all year.  We can use a few green materials- like salal, as long as it will dry well when packed tight with other materials.

All materials are provided, although I encourage students to bring dried leaves, pods, and cones from their own garden.  When done in this characteristic “Hawaiian style” they are very full wreaths, and may take 3-5 hours to complete, depending on the materials used.  Some folks opt to also make swags and this is an option if time provides.

Please bring lunch and a beverage.
