Select three workshops from the following:
Flower Arranging Timeless Flowers with Christine Pearce
In this workshop you will create a lovely Christmas table design using candles and fresh seasonal foliage and flowers. We will also add some Christmas bling to give your design a sparkle
A Christmas Ring in Ribbon Embroidery with Marilyn Pipe
A beautiful seasonal ring in simple stitches, suitable for beginners as well as the more experienced embroiderer.
Lino-Printing Christmas Cards with Abi Burt
Design your own Christmas card and print an edition, using the simple process of Lino-cutting. Lino-printing is a technique of printmaking from the last century, and is the modern continuation of wood-block printing, a beautiful technique which has been used for decades.
Participants can take home their lino masterpiece and continue to print as many Christmas cards as they want at home
Truffle Topiary Tree with Louise Talbot
I'm sure we all have childhood festive food memories at Christmas time - for me it has to be a silver tray with a selection of nuts, crystallised ginger, cherries (Southern hemisphere!) and Mother's homemade fudge and truffles.
During this workshop you will make some of my favourite truffles - Port & Prune, White Chocolate & Pistachio, and Rum & Raisin. I'll also show you how to display them on a very special 'truffle tree'. These all freeze very well so can be a job done for Christmas"
