We're sorry, but this activity is over. The last meeting was Tuesday, November 29, 2022.
This wreath is made on a base of damp salt marsh hay which helps to keep it fresh for weeks. Several varieties of fresh evergreens are inserted to cover the wreath. Get creative as you decide how to arrange the decorations including oyster shells, evergreen cones and teasel. For a finishing touch variegated leucothoe (a shrub which keeps its leaves year round) leaves outline the wreath. At the top of the wreath will be a bow made from Scottish tartan plaid ribbon of red, green and gold. Dress casually for this class. Please wear a mask and bring sharp garden snips to wreath class(es), gloves are helpful for working with the salt marsh hay. You'll be proud to hang your beautiful wreath up in time for Duxbury's Holly Days. At class time pay the instructor $25 for the materials.* Class size limit 10. INSTRUCTOR: JEANETTE MACKENZIE is a gardener of everlastings, herbs, flowers and veggies. Jeanette earned Gardening Consultant Accreditation through the National Council of State Garden Clubs.
