Kissing Balls

£65.00

Friday 6th December 10am - 12.30pm
Wednesday 11th December 6.30pm - 9.00pm

Level: Beginners  

Completely new for Christmas this year we have decided that having found them so popular on our Winter Seasons workshop last year to offer this to everyone!

A kissing ball traditionally was hung indoors in a doorway as a symbol of goodwill to all who visit - perfect for Christmas!.  Originally made from an apple or potato these are now slightly more sophisticated. Having created a base, you will decorate with long lasting evergreens, berries, herbs and dried materials.  They smell divine (and you will always have some herbs to hand for your Christmas lunch too!).   Hanging from a ribbon they can also be used outdoors if you wish.  (Ours lasted months in the garden last year - and we only dismantled it because it looked a bit strange having Christmas decorations at Easter!).

The workshop includes all the materials, foliage and ribbons that you need to complete the item(s).

As this is Christmas season we will have homemade mince pies (made by our lovely Caroline, head cook) and warming mulled wine to get you in the mood!

You will also be provided with tools to use during the session.   If you wish to purchase tools, we have these available and can be purchased during the session.

We suggest you bring your camera to take photos as a reminder of what you have learnt during the session.

We would recommend wearing  comfortable shoes and clothing that you don't mind getting wet or dirty (as wreath making is especially grubby!).

This workshop is held at The Cambridge Flower School, Newton Hall, Cambridge CB22 7ZE.

The full fee is £65.00.
