Christmas wreathmaking workshops at Fell Foot

Wreath making workshops at Fell Foot

What better way to get into the festive spirit than by designing your own Christmas wreath, made from all-natural Lake District materials.

Thursday 5 & Friday 6 December, 10am-2pm

Join our Ranger Jo (and her Ranger dog, Bob) as you forage around the park, cutting berried holly, juniper, box and yew and anything else you’d like to use (within reason of course!). As you walk you’ll learn more about the history of the park, the trees and plants within it, and the work that’s been done to restore elements from its Victorian heyday. Head back to the Active Base with your spoils, where more decorative elements such as dried citrus fruits will be provided to help you take home a wreath you’ll be proud to hang on your front door.

When we break for lunch, help yourself to the following (all included in the price)
