 Spotted Dog Christmas workshops have become a modern tradition for many of my customers who return each year.  In 2019 there will be plenty of opportunity to make a traditional wreath in various venues. Willow wreaths also get a look in again as they were very popular last year and garlands and table decorations are also included.  

We would love you to join us for a fun and social day out making a Christmas wreath, table decoration or garland to decorate your home. Each workshop is slightly different.  We will be using traditional methods of mossing and wiring and no floral foam will be used in any arrangements.  There will be an amazing array of lovely sweet smelling foliages and you will make use of everything from mixed firs, to eucalyptus, vines, rosemary, silver birch, ivy and more.

 No experience necessary as demonstrations and full support is provided.  All materials and tools provided but please bring gloves if you have sensitive hands.

All materials, tools and aprons are provided. We use loads of fresh conifers and evergreens, dried seedheads and flowers, in fact anything you'd like to add to make your creation individual to you.  We use traditional techniques including wire frames, sustainably sourced moss and foam free table decorations.   Lunch is included in some workshops, others are shorter and include refreshments.

Hopefully there is something for everyone to enjoy.  Places are restricted to ensure everyone receives attention and absolutely no previous experience is required.

Note that if you have a group of friends and would like a bespoke workshop, do get in touch to discuss requirements.
