Wreath Making Workshops

Exchange Place’s popular wreath making workshops are held each year the week before Christmas in the Country. Participants learn basic wreath making techniques, the differences in the various boughs, and how to embellish with natural accents, as each wreath maker creates a unique evergreen wreath to take home. All materials – a variety of fragrant greenery, cones, dried flowers, etc. along with wreath form and wire – are provided. The workshop fee is $40 and includes all materials and light refreshments.
