Wreath Weaving: The Traditional Balsam Bough Wreath
Spend a cozy, wintry day on the Round River Farm in Finland, Minn. (48 miles SW of Grand Marais), an inspirational homestead environment, as you learn to create a hand-woven, balsam-based holiday wreath from start to finish. Use forest materials harvested in a sustainable fashion and learn specialized weaving techniques to create fresh, natural greenery wreaths, unadulterated by waxes, paint or artificial scents. We will learn how and when to cut greens, what particular materials you will need and how to weave these greens into a circular form. Your efforts will provide you with a wreath to take home.
