Wreath Making Workshop

Wreath Making Workshop

A classic Christmas wreath making workshop is happening at Carton! Join us for one of our festive workshops and learn how to make your own classic style Christmas wreath. We are collaborating with Eirlooms Irish Craft & Design, under the skillful eye of Mary Whelan. 

Mary Whelan is a lifelong designer, crafter and stylist. Her work includes artistry, textile craft in the form of contemporary embroidery, toymaking, and interior styling for homes and hotels. In an age when our society is saturated with mass produced goods, Mary believes that there is something very special about pieces that have been handcrafted with energy, patience and sincerity. Her workshops are designed to provide a relaxed, encouraging environment where participants
can unleash their creativity.

Everyone will take their own handmade wreath home with them along a set of newly acquired skills to be able to make their own door wreath from this year onwards. All materials are included and will be available for you to use. We will have a mix of festive foliage for you to choose from, so there's lots of opportunity for creativity. No two wreaths will be the same! This will be a fun, informal workshop but we will guide you every step of the way to ensure everyone leaves with a wreath they can be proud of.

To get into the festive spirit, we will be serving mince pies and mulled wine, so this is sure to be a truly Christmassy affair!
