Air Plant Wreaths
Create a fresh and festive wreath featuring living air plants to adorn your home this holiday.
In this hands-on workshop, you’ll design and delicately wire Tillandsia, or air plants, to a grapevine wreath frame, and learn how to keep your living wreath happy throughout the season. Your finished wreath will be approximately sixteen inches wide, and will do best indoors, in indirect sunlight.
All materials are included. Payment is required in advance and is non-refundable. This program is limited to fifteen people, and must have a minimum of four participants to take place. In the event that the workshop is canceled, participants may choose to participate in another session.
