About the event
Create a stunning spring wreath for your door or as a table centrepeice this Easter.
A great selection of seasonal foliage, bulbs, and plants as well as fresh and dried flowers will be provided for you to choose from to create a truly beautiful and unique wreath!
British-grown bulbs such as Tete a Tete miniature daffodils, delicate Puschkinia, and Muscari look superb mixed with stylish Sempervivum succulents in moss.
Using a natural grapevine-style wreath base and moss, Francesca will guide you on how to wrap your living bulbs and plants in moss, a technique used in Kokedama. Francesca will guide you in preparing and mossing your wreath base and then attaching your plants and bulbs.
Francesca will teach you wreath-making techniques such as how to make 'bundles', small arrangments of flowers and foliage, and attach these to your wreath.
Sempervivum succulents, known as House Leeks, are hardy plants often found growing on roofs therefore, a wreath with rooted Sempervivum will grow and spread over time creating a truly 'living wreath' The bulbs can either be left on the wreath or planted in the garden or window box after the Easter holidays!
All ingredients, tools, materials, and guidance are provided during the workshop. It is advisable to bring an apron or protection for your clothes as moss can be messy!
