Flurry of bookings for Port Solent’s first Christmas wreath making workshops

Port Solent has announced its first wreath making workshops have been selling out fast and just a few places remain.

The extension to the popular Festival of Christmas has sold out of workshop spaces for 10am-12pm and 1pm-3pm on Saturday 14 December with just a few spaces remaining at 3.30pm-5.30pm.

Due to popularity, sessions on Sunday 15 December have been opened and there is currently availability at 10am-12pm and 3pm-5pm.

The workshops, hosted by local florist Claire’s Floristry, were launched in response to the increase in popularity of wreath making which gives friends and family the chance to get together during the festive season and create and take home some wonderful crafts to show off at home.

The sessions of 10-12 people are £35.00 per person and this includes all the materials, expertise on how to make the wreath and decorate it.  Hot drinks and refreshments will also be provided at the workshops being held in the former Bookends unit just inside the entrance to Port Solent.

Port Solent’s Lisa Fowler said: “We’re delighted with the response to the wreath making workshops, it’s a great addition to our Christmas activity and we’d be delighted to see fans of our Festival of Christmas weekend joining us again for the wreath workshops.

“Claire’s Floristry has been a regular stall holder at our monthly markets and at the Festival of Christmas selling her wonderful wreaths and now everyone of all abilities has the chance to make their own under Claire’s guidance.”

Bookings must be paid in advance and are non-refundable.  To book your place on one of the workshops email info@portsolent.com.
