Wreath making workshops

I hope you are enjoying the Wreath Wednesday  tutorial series so far. We have the pompom wreath, mini wreath decorations and the midnight snow wreath to date. I will be covering front door wreaths soon, but for those of you that want to get social in your making I thought you might find a list of wreath making workshops local to Oxfordshire and the Cotswolds useful. For info on courses in London and further afield see Flowerona’s post here.

I will be making a green wreath with a video tutorial later in the series so don’t worry if you can’t make a workshop, you can always gather your supplies and follow along with my video which will be posted soon.

I haven’t attended any of these courses so this is just an alphabetical list rather than recommendations. It is not exhaustive. If you do attend one do let me know how you got on and post any photos on the facebook page I would love to see.

Don’t forget to book your place, some of the workshops I found I haven’t listed here as they were fully booked. All the courses below link to further details when you click through.
