About the Christmas Wreath Making at Oxford Botanic Garden
What better way to celebrate the spirit of Christmas than to create your own festive wreath to hang on your door at a Christmas Wreath Making course.
Learn the basic techniques of making a wreath and then add lots of beautiful dried flowers and seed pods collected from the Garden. Your wreath will be quite different from anything available to buy on the high street.
About your host
Your host is floral designer Lyn Oswin of Enchanted Floristry at Minster Lovell.
Lyn, who has had a life-long flare for creativity, will show you how to create a traditional wreath using foliage, dried flowers, seed pods and fir cones gathered from the Botanic Garden and Arboretum.
Lyn says: “I’m delighted to be coming along to the Botanic Garden to help you, step-by-step, create a gorgeous and unique Christmas wreath – it’s such a fun and satisfying thing to do, and I look forward to meeting you all.”
Lyn will bring mulled wine, mince pies and music so you can sing along to Christmas songs whilst creating your wreath.
About the venue
Located just off the High Street in Oxford city centre, The Oxford Botanic Garden is the oldest in the UK and a year-round oasis of biodiversity with nearly 6,000 different types of plant.
Dress warmly because the Christmas Wreath Making at Oxford Botanic Garden course will take place outdoors under gazebos.
