wreath making classSeasonal Wreath Making Class
November 10, 2019
$50/per person

One of our most beloved classes! Gathered and grown in gardens and wild places of Santa Cruz county, we provide a dazzling array of greens, herbs, evergreen foliage, and berries to craft a seasonal wreath. Each participant receives a handmade wreath base, wire, and their choice from the selection of fresh and dried materials to make a fall or winter wreath to grace their home. There is a special kind of community that forms as we all work with our hands and with the natural materials to make these unique and beautiful creations. Participants are also encouraged to bring their own favorite or significant materials to work with or to share, such as ribbon, dried flowers, or favorite greenery.

garland classEvergreen Garlands Class
November 10, 2019
$50/per person

New this year, by customer request, we introduce the evergreen garland class! Crafting a garland is similar to making a wreath, but it has its own particular rhythm and techniques. We’ll each make a 6’ garland of evergreen boughs, accented with herbal and floral materials.(If we have time and materials, you can go beyond 6’; measure your space before class, if you are hoping to craft a garland for a particular area.) Perfect to drape over a fireplace, lay along a long feast table, or climb up a banister, an evergreen garland is a beautiful way to bring the beauty and fragrance of the Pacific Northwest rainforest inside for the season.
