Want to learn how to make your own Christmas wreath? Why not book into one of the Pollendine’s DIY Wreath Workshops this Winter?

Winter is here, yet again!DIY Christmas Wreaths

(Well, okay, it isn’t actually, but those Autumnal days of chill are just as festive, to me, as the full-blown snows of December.)

For me, the festive season is a time of year which can easily become fraught – running about on errands, finalising all those Christmas details and buying gifts. Indulging in some quiet time with nature, making a wreath outside in the beautiful chill of a Winter’s day, reminds me what is important about Christmas. To me, it represents the fleeting beauty and sparseness of the season (and the rewarding warmth when you go inside!), and the value of giving yourtime. It is all too easy for us to fill our shopping baskets with mindless gifts, but what could be more special, and individual, than the time you have devoted to creating something with your own hands? It is the ultimate gift to another, or indeed, to yourself and your family.

DIY Wreath Workshops – learn to make your own Christmas wreath on a Pollendine’s wreath making workshop, and take it away to bedeck your door! Perfect as a treat for yourself, or as a gift for a loved one.

Pollendine’s DIY Wreath WorkshopS

This November and December, I’ll be running wreath making workshops! Having sold wreaths for many years now, I constantly get asked, “but how do you make them? Are the bases really biodegradable, and can I really use them again?” Of course they are, and of course you can! Why not come to a wreath workshop and learn, getting a beautiful wreath for your door and also learning all the tools so you can make one yourself for the future?pollendine's DIY wreath workshops chesterfield

Learn how to make a completely natural, biodegradable, stylish wreath for your home at my wreath workshop, which will take place in greenhouses and outdoor spaces of my garden, in the Derbyshire countryside.

    Phoebe, having seen your wreath creations over a number of years and having purchased them in the past it is tremendous to read that you are setting up a workshop to divulge your secrets! It will be a fascinating and fun day for sure. Also, as you are the Edible Woman herself, I know participants will be treated to sublime cakes and a wonderful lunch.

    May I recommend this day course to your readers – it will be a wonderfully inspiring day full of Christmas magic. Come and enjoy!
