At The Academy there is nothing that gets us feeling more Christmassy than our festive workshops – in particular our  wreath making and garland sessions! In this entirely hands on course you will learn the traditional method of making a Christmas wreath from scratch.

Led by our experienced tutors you will create and decorate  your own stunning natural wreath for you to take home with you at the end of the workshop. It will be made from seasonal spruce, natural materials and foliage. There will be plenty of  gorgeous decorations to choose from to adorn your wreath,  ranging from dried fruits and cones to berries and ribbons.  Your wreath will be the perfect size for the front door, and will be sure to be admired by all of your festive guests.

We will also take you through the techniques used for creating beautiful organic garlands to decorate your home and you will create you own piece of garland to take with you. Garlands look fantastic in the home at Christmas and work well on a mantle piece, banister or running down the centre of your Christmas table. Throughout the course we will give lots of creative and inspiring ideas of additional ways to decorate your home with festive flourishes this year.
