Arrive at the farmhouse on Thursday 5th December and settle in front of the log fire with a large slice of cake and pot of leaf tea.
Enjoy farmhouse supper and then settle down for the evening with a great book. Have a great night’s sleep and awake to a continental tray brought to your room. Or treat yourself to our award-winning eggs and bacon in the breakfast room overlooking the orchard, before everyone else gathers at 10 am.
Join the group workshop on Friday 6th December and 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 1 pm and the day will draw to a close at approximately 3 pm 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.
What our guests say –
‘Thank you so much for the wreath workshop last Saturday. We had a lovely day and were thrilled with what we produced, and would all have a go at making them again now we have learnt how.’ Anna from Salisbury
‘Just wanted to say thank you again for the class on Saturday. Mandy and I had such a lovely time thanks to your skills and hospitality. It made me wish I had an AGA to attend more of your classes. (After her train journey) Mandy arrived back in Wimbledon with the wreath intact and is delighted with it as am I with mine’. Pauline from Wimborne
