Our traditional Christmas courses are the perfect way to spend a little time relaxing and learning a new skill with your friends. Gather a group together and escape to our potager for the day.
Each event is personally tailored to suit you and could include
- Create an Advent Ring
- Craft a Festive Wreath
- Christmas Table Centre
The classes are informative but fun and guests are invited to arrive from 10.30 am for freshly ground coffee and shortbread warm from the AGA.
As soon as everyone is comfortable we will settle in front of the roaring log fire or beside the AGA in the farmhouse kitchen.
The workshop will include a combination of demonstration and ‘hands on’ creativity dependant on your chosen theme. Please get in touch for more details.
You will have ample time to follow every step and enjoy the process of assembling a natural decoration using conditioned foliage and moss from our gardens.
Everything you will need for the workshop will be included and you will take home a beautifully created traditional festive decoration.
We will break for a vegetarian lunch at approximately 1 pm and the day will draw to a close at approximately 3 pm but not before everyone has had the opportunity to complete their work.
There will be ample cafetiere coffee and Dorset tea, lots of fun and chat, along with home baked treats to keep us all in the festive mood throughout the workshop.
What our guests said last year –
‘Thank you again for a truly lovely experience at your house on Saturday.’ Sarah Bradshaw from Dorset
‘A wonderful morning spent in this lovely farmhouse at a Christmas Wreath workshop. Lisa is a super teacher and on hand to help with any tricky bits! Great feeling to have made my very own Wreath and one, to quote another participant, “fit for the front door, not just the back!’ Janet Butler from Cranborne
‘Had a fabulous morning making my wreath. I could believe I could make anything that looked accomplished but with Lisa’s help, my wreath has hung on our front door with pride for the whole of the festive season.’ Charlotte Richardson from Winchester
