WINTER WREATH

“How to master a beautiful, traditional wreath,
including every step, for year-round designs”

Philippa Craddock knows how to make an entrance. The self-taught florist was responsible for the cascading arch of greenery that decorated the facade of St George’s Chapel, in Windsor, for Harry and Meghan’s wedding. Now, to celebrate her series of downloadable workshops, she is offering a wreath-making lesson that will make your front door fit for a royal visit this Christmas.

about

Filmed in our Sussex studio and the surrounding woodlands and forests, we are excited to launch our first digital workshop - full of inspiration, with easy to follow steps to create a traditional outdoor winter wreath. We teach you how to moss a traditional base, how to source and select the best seasonal foliage and ingredients, how to perfectly secure additional decorations and finally methods to look after your design. At the end of the workshop, you will have all the skills to create your own design (or for current florists, to perfect your work for others), year after year. We focus on traditional methods, combined with our own techniques and sustainable options, which we have perfected through creating designs for our clients including Alexander McQueen, Hermes, Vogue and Christian Dior.

EXPERIENCE LEVEL

This workshop is perfect for complete beginners and florists looking to perfect their skills when making a traditional festive outdoor wreath.

Above is a short introduction to the full length digital workshop. We have included the most important techniques and the key traditional methods, sharing our own experience (we have purposefully removed anything unnecessarily complicated and focus on our down to earth approach), to help you create a perfect design with ease.

customer feedback & reviews

I can’t thank you enough for the video - it’s great as it’s not pressurised and shows what beginners can do without being judged. This workshop is fantastic at demystifying the making of wreaths and making the use of foliage around. We run a small flower farm on Dartmoor and this will now allow me to give classes next Christmas as we grow all the ingredients for the wreaths but up to now I’ve only had the courage to sell the foliage, but now we can get creative.

This was so exciting to see you in action and watch the beautiful wreath materialise. From your walk in the woods collecting the pieces, the music, the commentary was like a dream. Was just out yesterday cutting branches. Now this gives us even bigger ideas for our next project. Thank you so much.

I am learning so much from you, as a home gardener with a love of flowers, but limited knowledge of arranging them, I am so excited about your digital classes.
