Wooden Wreath Workshop
Customize your very own wooden mixed-media wreath by painting and decorating it. You will be guided throughout this hands-on workshop.
Our instructor will provide templates of wooden wreaths to assist you with ideas. Explore your creativity by adding finishing touches of faux garlands, leaves, winterberries, burlap, ribbon and more.
Once you’re finished with your eye-catching work of art, hang your lightweight wreath on your front door, fireplace, wall, mantle, office or simply gift it to a friend or loved one.
Mulled wine, holiday cocktails and freshly baked cookies will be served throughout the entire event.
