Christmas wreaths

Each year I host two different types of Christmas wreath workshop where you are welcome to my home in Harleston near Diss for an afternoon of creative fun.

I offer both a traditional and a luxury workshop, both are all natural and biodegradable the traditional will last until the spring should you wish to decorate your shed or garden gate after the Christmas period slowly drying out and turning beautiful silvery and grey colours. The luxury will last a lot longer as it used dried flowers from the meadow although the foliage is fresh and will also turn beautifully silver grey over time, mine is decorating my kitchen wall 2 years later as a country ring and still doesn’t look like it has seen its end.

If you are interested in joining either of my workshops, please take a look below at both classes.

Workshop dates will be advertised and posted on social media and full payment for the event will need paid in advance and unfortunately no refunds but movement to other available dates can be made if space is available, or used on another event within 6 months.

Just back from a wreath making afternoon – what an awesome experience – so much to choose from. A very informal but informative session where we all came away with a beautiful wreath even though most of us had never done anything like this before

I had an amazing time with Helen on Saturday at one of her Christmas wreath making workshops. Helen is a fantastic host, a great teacher & it was a real pleasure to meet some other lovely ladies. I came home with new skills & a beautiful wreath for my door. I give Helen 6 stars but the review bar doesn’t allow it!…I will definitely be seeing Helen & her family again this time next year

I really enjoyed the wreath making workshop on Sunday, great fun and really clear instructions from Helen. The homegrown flowers are beautiful so you can’t fail to make something lovely. I have received so many compliments on my wreath.
