Fall Wreath Making with Glory Laurel from Whole Systems Ag & Floral @ Root

Fall has arrived and it’s time to get festive! Join us for a creative and earthy evening learning the art of wreath making.

In this workshop taught by Glory Laurel from Whole Systems Ag & Floral, you will learn how to build your own wreath frames from the ground up out of vines and branches! We will be adding in various dried and foraged goods, such as dried flowers, wheat, ornamental corn, and foliage creating a more stylized wreath with a floral piece. If you have taken our winter wreath workshops, this is a completely different technique with a very different look!

Workshop Includes:
Supplies needed for building your wreath
An abundance of dried and foraged foliage grown sustainably and without the use of chemicals by Whole Systems
Light snacks & sips!
