Winter Grapevine Wreath Making Workshop
June 2022 $125 (Date to be confirmed)

Winter is a great time to make the most of the local grapevine trimmings and create something beautiful. We will make a grapevine wreath base from scratch using locally sourced grapevine and you will learn about other materials you might use to make other bases.

We'll retire to the Flower Shed for morning tea after which I will discuss different design options you might like to try plus I'll demonstrate different techniques for attaching seasonal foliage, flowers and interesting

bits and bobs to your wreaths. Then it's over to you to create something beautiful for your home or as a gift. 

The first part of the workshop is outside so please wear weather appropriate clothing. We need a bit of space to weave our wreaths.

Come and spend a relaxing couple of hours learning how to create a hand tied bouquet using seasonal blooms at My Flower Cart's flower farm. 


This workshop will teach you how to create a bouquet using the spiral method. This is a great way to make a bouquet and you can simply place it in a vase to make a beautiful arrangement in your home. I will spend a bit of time demonstrating this technique and will also discuss how I choose flowers for a bouquet and how to properly condition your flowers before you begin creating. We will use seasonal blooms and interesting seed pods and textural botanicals which really add interest and whimsy to a design. Morning tea will be provided.
