The wreath – a symbol of the holiday season, can be easily created by hand, using local materials, as well as be a great creative outlet! Join G.A.L.A. and partner, Jack Mountain Bushcraft School, at 5:30 pm on Wednesday, December 11, to create these beautiful holiday symbols with Jessica Cole.
Jessica Cole will lead participants in how to create a wreath using locally sourced pine, spruce, and fir bows, as well as dried seed pods, pine cones, and other natural materials. A metal hoop and florist wire hold the project together. Participants are encouraged to bring pine bows, natural materials, and other festive decorations for their wreaths to the workshop. Locally tied, fancy red ribbon bows will be for sale as well.
Jessica runs a shop on Highway 16 called Sumner Brook Landing, home of Sumner Brook Herbals and Sumner Brook Fish Farm, where she sells her herbal creations and smoked trout from the fish farm that her and her husband run.
Participants will leave the workshop with two things: a new skill, and a wreath to decorate their front door or give as a gift. This workshop is open to the public, and will take place at the Kingswood Youth Center on Highway 28 in Wofleboro. All workshops are $15.00 for GALA members, $35.00 for non-members. For this workshop, there is an additional materials cost of $5.00. Please call 603-539-6460 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to register, as there is a participant capacity of 15 students per workshop.
Hope to see you there!
