David Livingstone Birthplace Fun

Festive Wreath Making (13:30-15:30)

Date: 12 December 2021

Get in the Christmas spirit as we learn how to make these beautiful, long-lasting and all-natural decorations. People have been making wreaths for thousands of years to attract good, repel evil, celebrate special events, symbolise spiritual concepts, and mark the seasons. Making them is incredibly relaxing and meditative, a chance to engage with nature and express yourself creatively.

You'll learn how to weave a wooden circle out of gorgeous, bendy willow, and then how to decorate it - we'll also discuss what plants work for this and how to prepare them and care for them so they'll last longer. We'll solely use materials foraged in and around Glasgow, and the end product will be a wreath that you can re-decorate multiple times over its years-long lifespan.
