Saturday 26 – Wednesday 30 November 2022
10am – 1pm

Join us for a seasonal creative making session inspired by forest walks, winter’s fragrant scents, and warm Christmas festivities. With bases of fresh juniper, conifer and pine, create aromatic wreaths to brighten your doorways and appreciate throughout the festive season and beyond.

Led by floral designer Zosia, the workshop is divided into two parts; weaving and adding. The first part will focus on how to work natural materials like birch, ivy and willow. And weave them into base rings. Whilst the second part will give you plenty of freedom and time to explore and add fresh and dried materials.

About Zosia

Zosia is a botanical and floral designer/artist. Taking inspiration from the biophilia hypothesis* and the therapeutic benefits of being surrounded by natural elements, Zosia is fascinated with how people interact with and use space. She has created natural, living, and dried installations, and curated environments with people and plants in mind. Zosia works seasonally and takes inspiration for her floral designs directly from how they grow together in their natural environment. Her floral workshops are designed to give participants a balance between gaining practical botanical knowledge and creative play.

[1] The Biophilia hypothesis is the idea that humans possess an innate tendency to seek connections with nature and other forms of life. In The Anatomy of Human Destructiveness (1973), Erich Fromm described biophilia as “the passionate love of life and of all that is alive.” Biologist Edward O. Wilson, in his work Biophilia (1984) proposed “the tendency of humans to focus on and to affiliate with nature and other life-forms has, in part, a genetic basis.”
