On Monday 6th December, Hand In Hand Activities CIC hosted a wreath making workshop at The Institute, Grays Road, Grangefield and delivered by Katherine Fox.
Prior to the session, Katherine set out the tables with oasis wreath rings, greenery and festive additions to make sure there was plenty to go around. At the start of the session, we made sure that festive music was playing and everyone had access to hot drinks and sweet treats before Katherine, our teacher for the session, started talking the group through the process of making a festive wreath or table centrepiece.
Very quickly, the group were actively hands on strategically placing festive greenery in the oasis base and laying out their additions of dried orange slices, pine cones and holly sprigs. Once everyone was hard at work, we circulated with fresh hot drinks and sweet treats to keep the energy up.
Some of the group had brought their own personal decorations from home to make their wreath or centrepiece more personal to them while others used the dried additions provided.
One participant, who joined last minute, commented that she was really pleased that she decided to attend as she had thoroughly enjoyed her afternoon. Huge thanks to Katherine and everyone who supported the event.
We hope that everyone who took part in the wreath making workshop also enjoyed the experience and are happy with their creations. We look forward to seeing photographs of them in situ over the coming days.
