We are delighted to bring back this arboretum classic.  Our team of practiced instructors, led by Nan Bonfils, will get you started on a simple wreath form and fresh evergreens.  The rest is up to you but we guarantee the results will be beautiful.  You’ll go home with a dazzling wreath and a proud smile.  This active class is ideal for family teamwork or individual adults.  All materials provided.  Bring your own clippers and light gloves.  Consider bringing a few special ornaments or favorite holiday bow too.

Fee:  $15 for members and $20 for non-members (Register in the Hughes Educational Center).

* Same day as the Belgium Waffle Breakfast so we accept rolling admission for this class.  You can start your wreath anytime between 9am and 11am as long as supplies last.
