If, like me, Christmas is a time when you get an opportunity to flex your creative muscles via your perfectly wrapped presents, supremely boiled sprouts and expertly cut paper snowflake decorations, then Columbia Creative have something to blow the mulled wine out of the water. Reach for your holly, mistletoe and wine and head down to a wreath making workshop this month to customise your very own household ornament.
Taking place in Shoreditch (naturally) this creative workshop comes from the local floristry company of the same name, so they certainly know their holly from their ivy. The hour-long course comes complete with everything you could need to pack a creative punch into your wreath – beautiful flowers, evergreen foliage tinsel (well, maybe not?) and magically you get to take home the finished article home after the session.
The Owner of Columbia Creative, Jo Woodward, will be hosting the event and guiding you through the creative process. As experimentation is their forte, you will get the opportunity to push the boundaries of wreath making (within the boundaries of good taste of course).
The courses run up until 21st December and could make the perfect customised gift for a creative relative or simply to get the neighbours talking. Forget Oxford street commercial madness this Christmas – a handmade Christmas is much more up our street! (Words: Laura Thornley)
