Using fresh evergreens, create a handcrafted wreath, garland and table decorations of distinction that will rival those gracing the pages of expensive specialty catalogs. The process is easy to learn, and even beginners leave with impressive creations. Greenery and wire are provided, but you’re welcome to bring your own special decorations. Due to COVID-19-safety protocols this year we strongly recommend you bring your own pruning shears and gloves. Also, please dress warmly as these classes may have to be held outdoors on picnic tables.  Masks will be required to be worn during the entire session. Sessions are limited to 12 participants.  Pre-registration is a must.  If you have a large group, you can arrange for a private event!   NOTE: We will need plenty of fresh evergreens for these workshops. If anyone has evergreens from their yard to donate, please call the Nature Center of Cape May at 609.427.3045 to arrange for delivery or pick up. Thank you! This is an adult program COST: $30 Members, $38 Non-members EQUIPMENT NEEDED: Please bring gloves, a mask, pruning shears, and wear warm clothes.
