Winter Wreath Workshop - Dec. 9
Deck the Halls with your own two hands! Join Indigo & Violet Studio, Vivant Gardening Services, and Linda Laake Designs for a wreath workshop!
Participants will make their own half wreath featuring evergreens, eucalyptus, dried berries, and flowers that will rival any tree. Participants will also learn how to dry flowers from their own outdoor spaces and then use them in floral displays to impress their insta-friends and brighten up the winter months.
No experience required - we will provide virtual instruction and wreath examples. Kits are available for local pickup or delivery only.
Date: Wednesday, December 9 - 6-7:30pm via Zoom call. Zoom link sent 24 hours before class and recording will be sent after our live call.
Tickets are available with or without a kit of materials for folks outside of Chicago. Kits will be ready for pickup at our Half Acre Pop-up on December 6th or at Indigo & Violet Studio (1411 W. Irving Park Rd.) prior to class. For folks within the city we are also offering local delivery - add this $5 option to your cart and we will reach out to coordinate time.
