Cracking Christmas wreath workshops in Northants

Deck your door with boughs of holly! These local festive craft classes are hugely popular so, quick, book now!

This Christmas might look a little different, but we’re still prettying up our doorways with as much greenery and baubles as they can handle (because hey, if you can’t go a little OTT this year, when can you?).

If you fancy having a crack at creating your own Christmas wreath, socially-distanced workshops in Northants are still running in December (some come with free festive tipple btw). But be quick to book as tickets are selling like hot mince pies. Secateurs at the ready, let’s go!

Wreath Workshops Flore House

Flore House, Flore, various dates 2-9 Dec

Chelsea Flower Show finalist Georgie Dunn will be hosting a series of workshops in her studio at the exquisite Flore House. Venue-wise we think this will be hard to beat. You’ll use locally sourced greenery and natural decorations to make your wreath, plus there’s coffee, fizz, homemade cakes and mince pies to keep your creative juices flowing.

£65 per person,

Delapré Abbey, Northampton. Various dates to 11 Dec.

Using natural materials foraged from the Abbey grounds and starting with a willow base, you’ll learn the techniques to create a spectacular wreath with pine cones, berries, holly and ferns and head home with your own creation to adorn your door. Festive refreshments will be provided. Delapré will also be running festive letter writing, Christmas table arrangement workshops and eco cracker workshops alongside their Candlelit Tours and loads of other events too.

£20 per person,

Bar Encore, Towcester. Sun 6 Dec

Marcelli from Floral Celli will be leading this festive workshop, where you will learn the art of Christmas wreath making alongside a cheeky glass of fizz and some of Bar Encore’s famous tapas canapés. Use spruce, eucalyptus, pine cones and cinnamon to make a delightfully scented wreath and then zhuzh it up with a big, elaborate bow.

£50 per person,

Evenley Wood Garden, nr. Brackley. 4, 10 and 15 Dec

Evenley Wood Garden is the perfect environment for some festive celebrations, especially if we get a sprinkling of snow! With twinkling fairy lights, a log burner roaring away in the log cabin and a glass or two of mulled wine, you’ll be feeling all warm and Christmassy in no time as you create your piece de resistance under the tutelage of expert florist Juliet Corston of Willow Green Flower Farm.

£75 per person,

Whilton Locks Garden Village, nr. Daventry. 11 Dec

There’s plenty going on for Christmas this year at Whilton Locks, including this cosy wreath making workshop, which has refreshments included, and you can even enjoy a twirl around the ice rink while you’re here.

£25 per person,
