Our Christmas wreath making course is the perfect way to spend a little time relaxing and learning a new skill before the lead up to the ‘big day’. Join a group event or gather a six of your friends together for a tailored workshop on a date to suit you all.
The class is informative but fun and guests are invited to arrive from 10.00am for freshly ground coffee and shortbread warm from the AGA.
At 10.30am we will settle in front of the roaring log fire and Lisa will demonstrate the stages of making a beautiful wreath to adorn your front door, perfect for welcoming your guests this Christmastime.
You will have ample time to follow every step and enjoy the process of assembling a natural decoration.
Everything you will need to make your fresh foliage garland will be provided, but in addition you are more than welcome to bring your wellingtons and a warm coat to explore our gardens and select additional evergreens for your own truly unique creation. That is if you can be coaxed to leave the warmth of the AGA and the open fire!
Add the finishing touch to your individual wreath with our luxurious selection of traditional ribbons. We promise you will be spoilt for choice.
Finally if you cannot wait to practice your new found skills once you return home, then you can buy one of our kits which includes everything you will need to make another. All you need to do is add the foliage. An ideal gift to make for a friend or loved one.
We will break for a vegetarian lunch at approximately 1pm and the day will draw to a close at approximately 3pm but not before everyone has had the opportunity to complete a beautiful handcrafted wreath to hang on their door.
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.

‘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
