Love the old-fashioned Christmas wreaths decorating the historic buildings at Renfrew? Learn how to make one yourself! Enjoy a warm, festive atmosphere complete with hot cider, light refreshments, and recorded period music as you build your wreath. Participants will be provided with a wire frame and all the materials needed to create a traditional holiday wreath inspired by the rustic simplicity of our historic Pennsylvania German farmstead.
Decorate with natural evergreen boughs, holly, pinecones, and greens harvested on site by Renfrew’s staff. Make your own citrus and clove pomanders and finish it all off with a modest homespun bow. Participants should plan to bring their own pair of wire cutters, small pruners, and garden gloves. We also recommend bringing a portable seat cushion.
Workshop takes place in the Wagon Shed Room of the Visitors Center. This adult workshop is designed for individuals aged 18 and over.
