Wreath-making courses, kits and the best to buy

We absolutely love making wreaths and there is no better way to get into the Christmas spirit than by booking yourself onto a wreath making course (preferably accompanied by a glass of champagne!) Here are our pick of some of the best courses plus, if you don't have time, make-at-home kits and some of the prettiest wreaths to buy.

From classes at Soho Home to Liberty London, Wild at Heart‘s head florist will teach you how to design, create and decorate a luxury wreath.  Classes are from £130 per person, including all materials.

Petersham Nurseries have a series of workshops both at their Richmond and Covent Gardens posts but you’ll have to book in fast as they are selling out quickly (there was availability from November 28th when we last checked). From £150 per person including light refreshments using an array of woodland materials and sustainable floristry techniques.

A Little Bird Daylesford Christmas Wreath Making

There are a variety of courses available at Daylesford (all based out of their farm in Gloucestershire).   Weather permitting, you can gather your own blooms and foliage in a guided tour of the organic cutting garden at Daylesford followed by the course in wreath making.  Classes from £125 including materials.

If you’d rather stay at home, how about making your own wreath under the guidance of Willow Crossley?  She is selling her own wreath-making kits and you can watch a video to follow her tips. £75 plus P&P including hand picked, fresh seasonal foliage and berries plus accessories for the wreath delivered to your door on December 1st.

If you’re after a simple, locally sourced wreath then this Toast wreath making kit is just the ticket. There is a twisted willow hoop made by Hopewood Baskets in the Wyre Forest area of Worcestershire for using as a base, accompanied by floristry wire and a Fair Trade silk ribbon naturally dyed by artisans in India.  It comes with printed instructions and costs £30.

From November 17th, Yolke are hosting a Kitten Grayson Christmas Wreath Shop at their shop at 75 Elizabeth Street, SW1. Handwoven and adorned with home-grown dried flowers, Grayson’s signature wreaths are very pretty.  Until stocks last.
