Our annual Fresh Conifer Wreath workshop is now online! Our Make-It, Take-It format is flip flopping! Now you can Take-it, and Make-it at home! Our Fresh Conifer Wreath workshop is fast becoming a local tradition! Create a fresh, fragrant 14” conifer wreath to add some seasonal greenery to your home. All supplies and fresh materials are provided. Participants are encouraged to decorate their Conifer Wreath after the class using their own small ornaments, bows, lights and more! In order to maintain the safest environment possible, class will be offered via Zoom Meeting, a free online audio-visual platform.

All adult classes and workshops are recorded and are available for one week after the class. Therefore, if you miss a class, you will have one week to catch up on the class at your convenience. Review our class information and procedures for more information.
