Create a unique holiday wreath to elevate your seasonal decor! Designer David Pippin will guide you in using common evergreens to create a base wreath on a straw form. You’ll add a variety of beautiful accent greens cut from the Garden’s collections and various festive decorations. We’ll have cookies, hot cider and hot chocolate available (included) to snack on while you work on your wreath. This workshop sells out every single year and we’re only offering two sessions, so be sure to reserve your spot soon!

All programs are subject to change.
