Wreath making and Centrepiece Workshops

Weekends in November and December are very busy at Kings Creek Trees. Exciting wreathing workshops are held every weekend. Book early, as we always sell out long before the workshops take place!

Our Evergreen Christmas Workshops are half-day events, mornings and afternoons, from November 7 to December 20, inclusive. Morning workshops start at 9:30 am and will last until about 12:30 pm. Afternoon workshops start at 1:30 pm and will last until about 4:30 pm. We provide hot drinks and homemade muffins in our heated workshop.

Group workshops can also be arranged by appointment on other days.

Our customers tell us they have never seen wreaths so full and beautiful as the ones we supply. Our wreathing workshop participants love to be able to take home such a beautiful, large wreath, with the knowledge that they made it themselves! It's easy and fun, plus it's a time out in the country.

Please check out our 2015 Wreathmaking and Centrepiece Workshops Schedule.

Wreathing workshops include a presentation on the different types of greens available for wreaths. We demonstrate how to prune the cut boughs for wreathing purposes and how to make "bunches" for the wreath frames. We then demonstrate how to use our very safe, manual foot operated wreath clamp and we coach participants in the making of their wreath. Once finished, there is a demonstration of bow-making from the ribbon we provide and we then talk about the different types of conifer cones available.

We provide the ribbon to make bows and natural decorative material such as cones, etc., to decorate your wreath. Should you wish to use additional decorations, we recommend bringing whatever you like to see on a wreath. We will gladly assist you with attaching your decorations. You can then take home your fully decorated, large wreath (about 30 inches in diameter)

Check out our pricelist.

To register for one of the workshops at either location, or to order a custom wreath or centrepiece, please Contact Us by telephone or email.
