Wreath Making!

$29

with Audrey Herbest

Calendar Nov 18, 2017 at 1 pm, runs for 1 week

Learn how to create wreaths in time for the holiday season! Students will use a 12” metal ring to produce a beautiful, fresh double-faced 20-24” balsam fir wreath to take home. Join us for a fun-filled class and learn the Maine tradition of “wreathing” under the guidance of a veteran Downeast wreath maker. Materials provided: freshly cut Maine balsam fir tips, ring and wire. Students should bring gloves, small hand pruners and any ribbon or decorations they would like to use.  A materials fee of $10.00 per wreath, made payable to the instructor, is due at the class.

Audrey Herbest has been creating wreaths and other decoratons with locally-harvested balsam for almost 35 years, carrying on a long-lived family tradition.  Sharing this Maine craft with community members brings her great joy.
