Discover the ancient artistry of wreath-making, tracing its origins back to the laurel wreaths of ancient Greece and Rome symbolising victory and honour. This festive season, embark on a wreath-making journey with our exclusive workshops in collaboration with Wild at Heart (our resident florist). Led by renowned florist Nikki Tibbles from December 2nd to 8th, these workshops invite you to delve into the world of botanical creativity.

Making your own candles can also be a great way to bring festive cheer to your home. It’s a therapeutic and gratifying holiday activity, adding a personalised touch that radiates warmth throughout your living space.

During this special festive workshop, Nikki will guide you through the making of your wreath from start to finish using the best seasonal materials. Set in the vibrant atmosphere of Charlotte Street Hotel, you will create something bespoke to which you can take home and enjoy all season long. Find out more and book tickets to the workshop here.

To embark on this journey, gather your materials: wax flakes, fragrance oils, wicks and a pan. Melt the wax in a pan, once melted add the fragrance oils and pour the fragrant blend into your chosen mould, ensuring the wick stands tall at the centre. Watch as the wax cools and solidifies, revealing a unique, hand-poured masterpiece.

We hope this blog has inspired you to transform your home into a joyful haven this holiday!
