The annual wreath-making workshops will be held this year on Saturday, Nov. 25, from 11-1 and again 5-7; Tuesday, Nov 28, from 5-7 p.m.; and Thursday, Nov. 30 from 6-8 p.m., offering participants an opportunity to enjoy a hands-on start to the holiday season.
Local wreath-wrapper, James Smith and Museum Director, Patricia Henner, who has been conducting wreath workshops at the museum for over 10 years, will offer both novice and expert wreath-makers the materials and instruction necessary to take home a decorative wreath to last for months.
An $20 charge covers the cost of materials — one 12-inch ring, balsam fir, arborvitae and white pine boughs, pine cones, reindeer moss and ribbon to make a bow (with instruction). Feel free to bring natural decorations from your own yard to add to your special, one-of-a-kind wreath.
Because space limits participation to 14 people for each of the workshops, the Museum encourages early registration. These workshops always fill up quickly.
For people who wish to buy a locally made holiday wreath, The museum will be selling completed wreaths beginning Nov. 18 for $25, proceeds are used to support the non-profit Museum’s educational programs. The prepared wreaths are made at the Museum with five pounds of fresh, fragrant and hand-wrapped fir bough tips and are decorated with pine cones, berries and ribbon. They can be picked up at the Museum or delivered locally for free.
