Summer Wreaths

Participants will be making an 8 inch wreath on a bamboo hoop with various dried flowers and plant material. Participants can expect to learn the technique of trimming and forming bunches for their wreath form and learning the technique of binding the bundles to the wreath in a specific pattern. This workshop is suitable for those with no experience and everyone will be guided through the process together. When complete, participants will have their very own dried wreath to take home and display. Please bring small garden shears or a strong pair of scissors to the workshop.

Time: 6:15pm – 7:45pm

Demographic:  For ages 13+

Cost: $50/person

Pre-registration required. Registration closes Thursday, August 1st or when workshop is full.

Artist Bio:

Hi! I’m Aoife (EE-fa) and run a small business out of my home called the Irish Flower Girl. I moved to Canada in 2021 and have moved from Kingston to Toronto in 2022. I began my business in Ireland making Christmas wreaths, but then discovered the art of making dried flower wreaths. The best thing about dried flower wreaths is their sustainability. Dried flower wreaths preserve the stunning color of flowers, but last far longer than any fresh flower bouquet or wreaths (sometimes years). I purchase my flowers from a wholesaler in Mississauga, but I hope to be able to grow my own one day. Currently I am selling on Etsy and Instagram.
