The Traditional Wreath Making Christmas Workshops (£85 per person) take place on December 10, 11 and 12 at Day and Jauncey’s studio in Hackney, where guests will be greeted with a glass of mulled wine and mince pies. The hour-long masterclass then starts with techniques in “mossing” the steel ring – to create a moisture-preserving base for the greenery – before the focus shifts to the expressive business of arranging seasonal foliage and festive flourishes including pines, holly, berried ivy, pistachio, eucalyptus, mistletoe, cinnamon sticks and dried orange.
