Christmas Wreath Making Rowntree Park York

Get festive with the Friends!

For the last few years, the Friends of Rowntree park have run Christmas wreath making workshops. The events have run at the cafe and involve the opportunity to work with friends to create your own wreath made from foliage foraged from the park and local area. This is always a popular event and sells out fast. It’s a lovely community activity and also raises some money for our charity.

This year, we have reviewed the situation with regard to COVID and we have opted not to run a workshop, we don’t feel it’s the sensible option. But the good news is that we will be offering ‘take away’ wreath kits.

With your take away wreath kit, you can opt either to take home and craft in the warmth with Christmas music blaring, OR arrange to meet some friends in the park – hijack a table in the railed gardens, head to the log story circle or bring a picnic blanket and craft outside in your own space in the park. Stick on the thermals and pack that thermos with coffee or mulled wine. Enjoy crafting in nature – brilliant for your health and wellbeing. Obviously in no more than groups of 6 in line with the current guidelines!
