Festive Wreath Workshop
Festive Wreath-making Coffee morning and Foraging walk
Saturday 9th December
10am- 1pm Boardwalk Cafe Benone
Learn to make your own fully reusable, sustainable and ethically gathered, fresh green wreath for this festive season, in the wonderful Boardwalk Cafe at Benone.
Whilst crafting your own wreath, from freshly foraged greenery under the guidance of Folk&Flora, you will also learn the meanings and folklore behind the plants and ornaments we bring into our homes during these winter months.
Each participant will take home one fully decorated, reusable fresh wreath and the skills, knowledge and a few spare bells or baubles to refill it at anytime. We will (weather permitting) go on a short foraging walk to gather foliage from the pines that line the dunes at Benone and cover how to sustainably and ethically gather your own materials, where to find them and what to avoid, before returning to the Cafe to create our own wreaths and learn the folklore and meaning of each plant, shape and decoration, the aesthetics of building your own wreath with personal flare, and the environmental impact of store bought, one time use arrangements. All whilst sipping festive tea or coffee (delicious seasonal snacks will also be provided)!
Come on down to Benone for a day of sea air, pine and gorgeous coffee and kick of the festive season with a little floral magic.
