Christmas Crafts Weekend
Join us for a creative weekend of Christmas crafting. Arrive on Friday evening, meet your tutor and enjoy a delicious 3-course dinner in historical Gartmore House. On Saturday and Sunday you will learn an array of skills including: flower arranging, cracker making, simple tinwork, wirework and simple stitching with felt.
What is included
- En-suite accomodation for 2 nights
- 2 days of tutoring from 10am – 4pm
- Full board – breakfast, lunch and dinner
- Materials to create your Christmas decorations*
What you will make
You will make a beautiful evergreen foliage door hanging decoration to welcome your guests this Christmas at your front door, and a lovely festive candle decoration for your Christmas table. You will also make your own very special personalised crackers – simple, sophisticated and fun!
Discover lots of creative ideas for gift tags and gift wrapping and learn how to make the perfect bow. If there’s time, you will decorate a seasonal rustic wreath with your new skills to display throughout the year in your home – or to give as a gift.
*All materials will be provided but bring small gifts or chocolates to include in your crackers if you would like to. You will need to bring your own secateurs and gloves for the floral arrangements.
