Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, November 24 – 26, 11:30 am – 2:30 pm – A Gardener’s Wreath


Tower Hill Botanic Gardens has scheduled a three hour workshop on wreath making which you may take on any one of three different days, November 24 – 26, with instructor Karen Perkins. Design a beautiful botanical wreath from a colorful assortment of choice evergreens, including some collected on the grounds at Tower Hill. Accent your wreath with a variety of dried materials; bow making instructions will be included. This unique outdoor wreath is made on a foam ring which can be moistened to last all winter. Bring pruning shears, wire cutters, and a towel. All materials included. The class begins each day at 11:30. $65 for Tower Hill members, $75 for nonmembers. Register online at www.towerhillbg.org.

Karen Perkins, former Director of Education at Tower Hill Botanic Garden, has been teaching folks how to fashion singularly beautiful holiday decorations for almost 30 years. If you can’t make this event, feel free to order one of the Garden Club’s magnificently decorated wreaths, such as the one pictured below, at www.gardenclubbackbay.org/shop
