Wreath workshop season is here! I’ve been teaching classes every day this week for team-building workshops and for private groups (if you want to bring me to your office or party, I still have a couple of dates left here).
If you own my book Field, Flower, Vase, you can find several compostable wreath methods in the book. Here are the projects in the book that can be adapted to the holiday season:
Green Garden Wreath (learn to make a wreath base) Page 221
Tisane Wreath (teaches you the weaving method for the decorative portion) page 153
I spent an afternoon arranging autumn flowers on a flower farm in Sintra. You can learn more about Mariana’s organic flower farm here. The baskets belonged to her grandmother. It is a family estate where she is now growing flowers for floristry, organically. The setting is rustic and beautiful. I loved combing through the gardens for hydrangea, pokeweed, and pomegranate.
I hope you enjoy a snippet of this beautiful afternoon! If you would like to join me in Portugal next May for moments like this, check out our 2023 Retreats!
