This workshop is the perfect way to enjoy nature in winter. You'll forage for lush winter foliage before heading back to a roundhouse overlooking Chew Valley Lake to learn about the magical folklore behind our native plants and create your own winter wreath brimming with the spirit of the season.
This wonderful winter activity for individuals, friends and families will teach you about ancient crafts and stories. You will learn how to weave a willow hoop before adding your freshly foraged foliage for a unique and eco-friendly winter wreath.
Come and get cosy by the fire, learn how to identify different plants and trees, and be enchanted by the magical folklore attached to different native plants. You'll also have plenty of mince pies and mulled wine/ warm spiced apple to get into the cosy festive spirit!

On the day, there is ample parking at The Community Farm. Please arrive slightly before the start time so we can maximise workshop time! There will be a fire in the round house but if the weather is chilly, please bring layers to keep you warm and snug. Part of the session will be outdoors, as we forage for foliage, so please be prepared for what ever the weather may bring.
