Christmas Door Wreath Making at Browsholme Hall, Images by Jonny Draper

This was the final Workshop for 2010 and what a fantastic day we all had, the weather was perfect, the setting sublime and an absolutely great bunch of people to work with....The fresh foliages and berries were arranged outside for easy selection and to look stunningly festive for Jonny Draper photographer extrodinaire to photograph themThe ladies and gentlemen were eager to get started

Everyone appeared to be having a great time

The work benches were already set up with scissors, aprons, gloves, bin bags and the all imortant Blue Spruce

The size issue, small one or a big one? you decide...

Then we were off, snipping and stripping...

Katarina was on hand offering assistance

Once all of that foliaging was completed it was time for lunch prepared by With a Twist
The dining room was dressed with some lovely Flower Design table centrepieces

And we were all entertained by the incredible "Brothers of Swing"

Time for a final mince pie before getting back to the very serious business of wreath making

Brilliant Jane! What an amazing two weeks of wreath making wonderment!!! There is going to be some serious wreath envy going on in the North-West when people who've bought theirs from the garden centre realise just how special a wreath can be when crafted with their own fair hands!

Brothers of Swing were incredible as always, Tom's videos are going to be seriously inspirational and we've met some wonderful people!

Merry Christmas everyone!

To be fair Jonny your singing stole the morning!!! Was an amazing experience... Have a great christmas talk soon.
