Wreath workshop

It was a very good day at the wreath workshop yesterday. Initially it was fully booked then one dropped out, a replacement was found and then a second person had to drop out. Fortunately I filled the space again and it all went ahead as planned along with much hilarity in the first hour as we worked together to create felts with angelina fibres incorporated and carded fibres to cover the polystyrene rings. In fact they were having way too much fun without me when I had to leave the room to iron the felts!

Without more ado here is the first wreath from Susan, along with a close up.

The red stripe around the wreath is a mohair yarn, it’s restrained but very stylish. Next up is a gold number from Heather.

The gold beading in the centre was brought along by Heather. I think the contrast with the softness of the felt really works and who can resist a little bling at Christmas.

The cones and the cinnamon in the wreath by Ruth give it a real warm rich feeling. My favourite part is the three ribbons hanging in the centre adding a little fun to the season.

It’s the fullness in the foliage and the addition of a small bauble that makes this wreath from Helen so successful. I enjoyed this workshop and look forward to when I can repeat it next year. As soon as I can I’ll show you the samples I made for this workshop.
