Looking to be inspired? The Highlands Center offers writing, art, and naturalist workshops throughout the four seasons.
If you have ever been to the Highlands Center around the holidays, then you are sure to have seen the lovely wreath we hang by our store every season. This December, we are offering you the opportunity to learn from Sue Clabby, the creator of our wreath, and take home your very own made with your own hands. In this two hour class, we will provide natural materials and the tools you need to create your own grapevine wreath (pictured left) and discuss how to collect and prepare materials. By the end of the class, you have a finished simple wreath and have the knowledge to add more or make another. Thursday’s class is a great opportunity for children to attend with a guardian. Only natural materials with be provided except for floral wire and hot glue, so if you wish for non-natural materials like ribbon and garland you can bring those supplies with you.
Where: Highlands Center for Natural History (1375 South Walker Road)
When: December 1st 10am-12pm and December 3rd 3:30pm-5:30pm

About Our Presenter
Sue Clabby has been making and selling wreaths for over 30 years. Her love for wreath making started with her mother’s interest in the activity. Her mother started an all natural wreath making company and had recruited Sue and her siblings to collect wherever they went. Sue still keeps an eye open for seed pods and cones wherever she goes and collects from Arizona, California, and Missouri. She finds making centerpieces, and wreaths relaxing and therapeutic. Each project is unique and satisfying in that it can be displayed all year round and not only for the holidays.
