Primrose Antiques and Gifts

 

“With pruners in hand, I stroll my nine-acre woodland for suitable vines and branches, forever snipping and weaving to create garden sculpture.”
– Laura Campbell

 

We are pleased to bring back one of our most popular workshops by one of Christianson’s most magical designers and master rosehip wreath weaver, Laura Campbell. In this workshop, you’ll learn how to make your own handmade rosehip wreath using local sources of wild wintered-red rosehips. Using Laura’s pre-made hand-woven wreath vines learn the art of placing individual rosehip branches into an 8-inch diameter wreath that will transform your front door into winter’s welcome. By nature, the rosehip wreaths will dry while holding onto their berries to ensure longevity through the seasons.

Please bring gloves and a pair of needle-nose pliers.
