WVC to host wreath making virtual workshop
Plan to spend an hour on Zoom Thursday, Oct. 8, for the upcoming wreath making virtual workshop, hosted by White Violet Center for Eco-Justice (WVC), a ministry of the Sisters of Providence of Saint Mary-of-the-Woods, Indiana.
The workshop will take place from 7-8 p.m.
During the Zoom workshop, WVC garden manager and fiber projects coordinator Candace Minster will guide participants through making their own seasonal wreath out of flowers and other natural materials from the Center’s farm.
“We will use a variety of fresh and dried flowers, seed pods, grasses, and branches gathered and grown at White Violet Center,” Minster said. “Most people should be able to complete a wreath in one to two hours. This would be a fun project to do with a family member or friend.
“It’s rewarding to make your wreaths because you can make it fit your own aesthetics. You can also include little bits from your own garden or yard to make it even more special.”
Minster added the workshop will be WVC’s first Zoom event.
WVC will send out a Zoom link prior to the workshop.
“This will be our first Zoom workshop,” Minster said. “Registrants will follow along as I show photos and demonstrate techniques. Participants can ask questions, just as they would in a regular workshop.
“I will have an assistant who will help me moderate the questions. Also, participants can choose to have their cameras on to show off their work or have me help them with troubleshooting.”
The class will be limited in size and the registration deadline is scheduled for Monday, Oct. 5. Cost is $35, which includes all the materials needed to make the wreath. WVC will send out a Zoom link prior to the workshop along with instructions on how and where to pick up the materials.
