Wellington residents who want to adorn their front door with a handmade wreath this Christmas can learn how to make their own during wreath making workshops with Nicola Cavanagh, who owns The Flower Tree shop, on Tuesday, December 5 from 6.45pm until 8.45pm and Sunday, December 10 from 3pm until 5pm.
Nicola, who is a British flower grower and florist, said: “People who come along to my workshops will learn all they need to know about making a luxurious mossed and foliage Christmas door wreath. I will be providing a range of festive foliages and natural decorations for them to use and will teach them the step by step method of wreath making.
“They’ll also be able to personalise their designs to their own tastes and take their finished wreath home with them to hang on their front door during the festive season. It looks set to be a fun and informative workshop and I hope lots of people sign up.
“It is a great class for anyone looking to learn a new skill that can be improved upon year after year. The Emporium Somerset is a great venue and is super relaxed, so perfect for groups of friends to come along to and socialise while they craft.”
The workshop will cost £40 per-person. Anyone wishing to attend will need to book and pay in advance by calling us on 01823 660076.
Nicola started growing sweet peas two years ago in her small cutting garden in the Blackdown Hills. In 2016, she stumbled upon a quarter acre glasshouse in Somerset that was in need of some tender loving care. She has since renovated and restored it and filled it with cut flowers and plug plants.
She produces signature Flower Tree posies, which consist of seasonal flowers from the flower field, wrapped in brown paper and raffia as well as pots, plants and ornamental items.
