In our virtual wreath making workshop, we will show you how to design and create your own decorative wreath using natural, sustainable materials. You will learn how to fill your wire frame, choose your materials and then decorate in whatever style you choose; from statement pheasant feather and bracken, to traditional holly and ivy.
