In this premium workshop, you will learn how to create two beautiful wreaths from scratch: an asymmetrical grapevine and a full circle wire frame wreath.
PLEASE NOTE: If you purchased the Pampas + Thistle Workshop earlier this year, you already have access to the complete video workshop. The video is the same, but you can purchase NEW seasonal botanicals here.
Purchasing this workshop today starts makers off with our Strawflower & Peach Ruscus Materials Kit (see images below) featuring elements to create a full wreath on an asymmetrical grapevine with dried floral ingredients to transition from spring to summer.
We’ll learn about the design principles of wreath making: layering and depth, volume and height, and the secret to making loose and natural looking wreaths. Natalie walks us through layering textures and elements, with tips for using materials sourced in your part of the world.
One of Natalie’s favorite things about this craft is the freedom to be messy and imprecise, setting perfection aside. Native Poppy is all about seeing floral design as a natural garden and modeling your creations off of what you would find in nature: florals and botanicals don’t naturally grow evenly or perfectly line up.
Allow your designs and elements to be a little untamed with uneven lengths for a wild and elegant creation. Natalie likes to think of wreath design like modeling clay — you can shape your elements and ingredients into whatever you want.
With just a few techniques and skills covered in our digital tutorial, you’ll be able to create one-of-a-kind, uniquely designed wreaths to fit any style. And the best part? This art form is so versatile and flexible, Natalie gives us the confidence and skills to get wild and create beautifully elegant wreaths with any combination of purchased, handcrafted or found elements.
