Floristry masterclass - Christmas door wreath

This hugely enjoyable and creative class will be taught by an industry professional florist- and will enable you to create a seasonal hanging door wreath using a traditionally constructed moss ring. Your design will then be decorated using fresh foliage, and a range of natural materials that will include preserved whole and sliced fruits, cones & cinnamon sticks- other materials such as ribbons & preserved foliage will also be provided, if you wish to add these as an accent. You will also have the opportunity to discuss alternative materials and further ideas for personalising your designs. If you have any of your own favourite materials at home that you may wish to incorporate into your wreath, such as coloured twigs or baubles, please bring them along.
