Spend a few hours getting into the Christmas spirit with this Christmas wreath making workshop hosted by Carole of Tuckshop Flowers. You’ll have a lovely selection of long lasting and locally sourced greenery to choose from to dress a ready-mossed base, and Carole will show you how to build a wreath from scratch for future projects and provide a range of additional ingredients to ornament your creation. Anything goes – wild and woolly or simply classic, whatever suits you and your front door the best!
This 6 week course is for people who are interested in learning about becoming a beekeeper. The course covers:
The natural history of honeybees is truly fascinating and the hobby is very rewarding for those that take it up.
The sessions are delivered by members of Birmingham & District Bee Keepers Association over six weeks. The teaching is classroom based with some practical, hands on content over one and a half hours. All practical materials are provided.
Taking our inspiration from Winterbourne Gardens we will create individual two or three colour lino prints onto paper using the reduction cut method.
All materials are provided. Please bring an apron or wear old clothes. We will also spend time in the garden, so suitable footwear and outer wear depending on the weather. A camera or phone with a good camera will also be useful but not essential.
Pre-booking is essential. Tickets can be purchased from the Winterbourne shop or via the Book Now button on this page.
If you wish to make prints onto book cloths to cover your own hand stitched case bound books, you can join the combined workshop Design, Print and Make your own Book, running on 17th and 24th June.
