Christmas Wild Wreath Making & Late night Shopping

Date: 13 December 2017 18:30 to 21:00
Join Damaris Copus for a friendly and relaxed workshop in creating your own beautiful and long lasting 'wild wreath'. Feel inspired by Damaris collection of freshly gathered greenery, beautiful berries, seed heads, dried fruit, feathers, ribbons - make your own selection and create with Damaris guidance.

Damaris has 25 years experience in wreath making. She started by making wholesale amounts of basic blue noble wreaths but quickly became more interested in nature inspired 'wild wreaths'. When not wreath making or gathering materials from woods, hedgerows and meadows, she designs and plants up gardens for family, friends and clients. Her work could best be described as naturalistic. She loves bees, wild flowers and trees.

You will also pick up the following skills:

- There will be opportunity to bend and twist pliable lengths of willow, hazel or dogwood to use as your natural frame...or if prefered there are copper wire florists frames

- How to use florists wire and tape to secure your foliage

- Understand design, proportion, balance and placing of 'flashes' of colour in your wreathe

Gain inspiration to create more wreaths or table decorations at home following the workshop

Damaris has been collecting and drying seed heads and flowers over the past months. The allium heads and love in a mist look especially pleasing. There will be a huge selection of natural materials available so that everyone can make a true one off piece to your taste. All materials and tools provided. All you need to bring is a good sized pinny to protect your clothes.
We will also be serving some mulled wine and festive snacks and Fabrications shop will be open for late night shopping!

TIME: 6.30 - 9pm
