Rose-hip Wreath Workshop

    5th October 2019

A wreath is not just for Christmas… and in many countries, seasonal wreaths welcome guests at all times of year. On this workshop, you will learn how to make a gorgeous autumnal ring of plump red rosehips — attached to a hand-made willow base. The workshop will start with a demo from Bek, our resident willow-weaver, who will show you how to make a willow base, before you get to make your own, using coloured willow grown here on the farm. Once you’ve made your willow base, we stop for a tea / coffee and cake break, then head indoors to decorate our bases with thornless, rosehip sprigs. We first spotted decorative rosehips in Belgium, on one of our gardening ‘research trips’, and have been huge fans of their autumnal colour ever since.
