Come and enjoy a wintry workshop (in the warm!) working with beautiful, winter, evergreen, local foliage to make a seasonal wreath.
We are keen to harvest Plaistow foliage and plants, so do bring along any greenery you have or can find (Holly, Firs, Buxus, Bay, Ivy) and any dried flowers that would look good. We can supply all the plant materials, if you don’t have any, but do bring the baubles or other decorations you want to add to your wreath.
- Wednesday 13th December 11am-12.30. Booking essential: Wednesday Eventbrite link or email or ring us
- Thursday 14th December 6.30pm-8pm. Booking essential: Thursday Eventbrite link or email or ring us
- VENUE: The Mix, 1A Cumberland Road, Plaistow E13 8LH
Children are welcome but we need to know they are coming. Maximum of 20 people each session
The 2 workshops will be led by our green spaces community worker, Milena. The wreath frames are to be made from a recently fallen Willow tree in Beckton park that Milena has harvested (with permission!) for these workshops.
Our Green Spaces work is as a result of resident’s wanting the green spaces in Plaistow South to be valued and improved and for the neighbourhood to be greener and more beautiful. Milena and I are hoping that there will be some very beautiful front doors, that guests will learn new skills and confidence in working with plants and that there will be a greater appreciation and knowledge of the plants in the area.
