Traditional and Unconventional Wreaths: Sunday, November 30, 1-4 pm, Free, Buddy Carter and Nancy Newhard
Wreaths can be used for the holidays–or not. They can be greenery based– or made from your favorite small collectible things. Wreaths do not even have to be round. Buddy Carter and Nancy Newhard will demonstrate- and then help you create a wreath from both a traditional and more unusual items. This class is free but the 12″ wreath forms will be available for a nominal cost, and some basic tools will be provided, but please bring some of the things you might feel will be fun on a wreath. These might include fresh clippings, artificial flowers, wool scarves ( need at least 60″ ones), old gloves, beads, old jewelry, ice skates, shells, key chains charms, ornaments, small toys, ribbon for bows– whatever you like to collect or discover at Salvation Army and Goodwill. We’ll work together to find a way to make the wreath yours. Whether your taste is traditional or unconventional, we want you to have some fun and go home with a special creation.
