From time to time we offer seasonal craft workshops such as lantern making, willow weaving and festive wreath making.
Please contact us if you would be interested in attending.
Come and join us at Wyldwoods Retreat and make your own Wild Christmas wreath.
Learn how to make your wreath base from our own willow, then make it unique by combining different traditional foliages with hedgerow seasonal treats like seedheads and berries foraged from our extensive 3 acre garden.
- The day will start at 10.00 with coffee or tea and some sticky morning treats. before wrapping up to go outside. Armed with our cutting tools as a group we will explore the extensive garden, and adjoining woodland collecting a huge variety of decorative items and greenery for your wreaths.
- Before lunch we will construct the wreath bases using willow from our own garden.
- A hot 2 course rustic lunch will be served straight from the Rayburn in the house.
- After lunch we will return to the lodge & decorate your wreaths using your foraged materials, as well as some extras such as ribbons, feathers and other special items that we will provide.
