Creative Workshop

The tradition of bringing evergreens into our homes around the time of the Winter Solstice goes back to pre-Christian times and it was part of Pagan rituals to celebrate the re-birth of the Sun and the coming of Spring, paying tribute to the natural cycles of the Seasons.

Come to the farm to create your own handcrafted wreath from nuts, seeds, leaves and flowers gathered from our land and woodlands. We will have a walk around the land and collect the necessary materials, then go back to the barn and create our own wreaths while sipping a nice hot drink and sharing winter tales.

Wreaths will be made entirely with natural materials and can be composted.
