Hi all! I am so excited to announce that on Tuesday 22nd of December I will be hosting a free rag wreath zoom class which anyone can join!! This is a collaboration with Tring Together as part of their brilliant advent calendar- a count down of free online activities in the lead up to Christmas: https://www.tringtogether.org.uk/advent-calendar
Rag wreaths are fun and easy to make, anyone can make them so they make a fantastic family activity. My children love making them! They’re also brilliant for recycling as you can use up old fabric, ribbons, buttons, beads, christmas decs, as well as natural materials such as pine cones and holly leaves.
If you would like to take part you will need to gather up some materials beforehand, which you will find listed below.
Alternatively, you can buy a kit from me for socially distanced collection from my house in Tring- kits include 20cm wreath frame, 4 x lengths of Christmas fabric which you will need to cut beforehand, floristry wire, ribbon, pine cones, baubles and other festive decorations. You can buy your kit here: https://adventuresincrafting.co.uk/product/mini-rag-wreath-kit/
If using your own materials you will need:
a metal hoop approx 20-25cm in diameter- I use floristry wire wreath frames which you can buy online (or from me) or you can make your own using a wire clothes hanger twisted into a circle
fabric cut into 15cm x 3cm strips (around 50cm x 1m of fabric in total)
decorations e.g. ribbon, baubles, pine cones…. anything you like!!
When / Where?
The live class will take place on Tuesday 22nd December 10am-11am on zoom. Anyone is welcome to join- this would make a great family activity if you would like to take part with your children or grandchildren but I would be grateful if you could ensure that an adult is overseeing them.
If you would like to join please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will send you the zoom joining information.
Hope to see you then!
