Have fun, learn a new skill, and create your very own handmade festive wreath for your front door.
Join florist Paula Edgington to start your festive season and make your own garden-inspired festive wreath. No previous experience is needed as you will be taken through the process step-by-step. The wreath will be made from scratch, and will have a moss-based ring. You will then cover it in a selection of festive evergreen foliages and berries which have been gathered from the Botanic Garden, followed by a choice of decorations from natural pine cones, cinnamon bundles, dried fruit and more, and finally a ribbon to hang it up. Come and have fun, maybe learn a new skill, be creative and leave with your very own handmade festive wreath for your front door.
Paula Edgington has worked for over 32 years within the commercial flowers and plants industry in the UK, both in retail, in the head offices of two major high street retailers, and in the commercial growing and production of flowers and plants for retail customers. She has also worked as a consultant within the industry for over 9 years. In 2018 she started her studio based floristry business popupblooms.com, initially starting with workshops and a market stall and the business has evolved from there providing seasonally inspired, natural, foam free floristry.
