These interactive yet therapeutic Christmas craft sessions in a cozy workshop space promise to let your creativity loose and inject a personal touch and style to festivities!
Christmas Wreath Making
Nothing beats making your own Christmas décor and the festive season extra-special when personalising individual creations with loved ones.
Under the guidance of patient, enthusiastic and experienced instructors, the wreath-making process was good fun working with a rich variety of materials ranging from dried florals and greens to gleaming bright-coloured ornaments.
Starting with a woody wreath, we selected a handful of pretty, shiny Christmas baubles of differing shapes and sizes for brilliance and seasonal embellishments.
The rest of the workshop was spent happily weaving in aromatic shimmery silver-green Eucalyptus as foliage, fragrant dried lavender stalks and fluffy dried cotton flowers, as well as sprays of plump bright red Hypericum berries and beautiful spiky blue-purple Eryngium thistles resembling stars, which added the pop of natural colour.
Proud moment when the finished piece of artistry came together as we oohed and aahed at one another’s wreaths – it was deeply satisfying to create a stunning show-stopper!
The workshop is indeed a lovely opportunity for families and friends to bond and get into the festive spirit together through the shared project of designing a meaningful and gorgeous keepsake that will fill the house with fragrant scents.

#FrameYourLove Pressed Florals
The Pressed Flowers Frame workshop is a charming creative journey into the world of pressed florals.
Kicking off with a brief history of pressed flower art, exploring its cultural significance and various techniques used throughout the ages, the instructors walked us through the timeless art of preserved florals, including best practices for selecting and harvesting flowers and foliage, and processes of properly pressing flowers and leaves.
After a quick brief on creative design principles and ideas for arranging beautiful, balanced pressed flowers compositions, it was time to arrange and frame our own long-lasting pressed botanicals!
It was delightful creating our own exquisite masterpieces from a wide colourful selection of pressed flower and leaves, and framing them as visually arresting works of art – certainly a new way to connect with nature.
