WILLOW HEARTS & WREATHS WITH DRIED HYDRANGEAS WORKSHOPS
This Winter, I will be running small workshops from my home teaching you how to make a heart or wreath shaped willow frame and go on to decorate it with dried hydrangeas. The workshops will be 2-3 hours long and there will be an opportunity to add fairy lights (optional) to your creation - or bring along a little decoration to add (like the one you can see in the photo - a gift from my daughter) to display or hide if you like - for yourself or to gift to a friend. These wreaths make a wonderful Christmas present and can be sent in the post with careful packaging which I can talk you through. Apart from the dates listed below, I am happy to arrange extra workshops for groups of 6. I will also add one or two more workshops as the ones provided below are filled.
Cost: £37.50 Dates: Tuesday, 16 November - from 3.00 to 6.00 p.m.

Join me in my home in Sidmouth for cozy small workshops during the festive season. My home is not in town, has loads of parking space and if you fancy bringing your slippers, bring them and make yourself feel truly at home. I will treat you with homebakes from my own kitchen, hot and cold drinks, a Christmassy ambience and a little shop of artisan wares from you will find stocking and under the tree treats galore.

These adorable Grinch trees are perfect for the season - so long lasting and great for kids and grown-ups alike. I am holding these workshops early as I know how much children love to have a touch of Christmas in the home as soon as December hits. With a choice of two sizes and lots of different ways to decorate them, a fun morning, afternoon or evening is assured.
