      Christmas Wreath Making Workshop

      Explore your creativity using a mix of foliage from Darts Hill Garden Park to create your own unique Christmas wreath with Sharon Lawson. The workshop includes some foliage from the garden with festive refreshments. Participants must bring secateurs or sharp scissors and a pair of gloves. Bring your own wreath making supplies or purchase from the workshop. Space limited to 12 per session. Equipment each particIpant should bring: secateurs, small wire cutters, small measuring ruler to make consistent bunches of three – five cuts gardening gloves Supplies each particpant should bring (or will be provided if you purchase a wreath making kit): 12 inch wire wreath form (or grape vine wreath) 6 or so  newspaper pages to bulk up the wire rim a green garbage bag of cut greens, (and cones)  a paddle of green floral wire, max 22 gauge  We will have a selection of cut branches available from Darts Hill Garden, some with berries and cones. If you have some specific foilage in mind, it is best to bring it for our supply and collection is limited. It is suprising how much material is needed to tie around a 12 inch wire form, and much, much more is used around a larger form. Variegated evergreen plant material, such as variegated Daphne, Osmanthus and holly is good for wreath making. Avoid cotoneaster as the red berries drop quickly and stain surfaces Location The workshop will take place in the Maple Activity Center, north of the Propagation area, please enter the volunteer parking lot located at 1680- 168th Avenue.
