Make your Festive Winter Wreath at Clandeboye Estate

With the festive season just around the corner, a winter wreath can add a touch of natural beauty to your home.

The Woodland Trust are hosting three winter wreath making events on Saturday 3 and Sunday 4 December at Clandeboye Estate.

Those who book on to one of these events will get also an exclusive walk through the private grounds of this historic estate woodland, lake and gardens.

Michelle McCaughtry, Engagement Officer for the Woodland Trust said: “We are so pleased to be able to offer our very first ‘Winter Wreath’ event at Clandeboye Estate.

“Those who book for our wreath making event will also get exclusive access on an hour-long walk around the estate’s private grounds to gather materials to adorn their wreath.”

The Woodland Trust is the UK’s largest woodland conservation and it has been active in Northern Ireland for over 25 years.

Profits from events, such as the wreath making workshop, provide a vital source of income for the work of conservation charity that manages over 50 woods across Northern Ireland.

Michelle added: “The money we raise from events such as our wreath making workshop will go directly back into the Woodland Trust’s vital conservation work in Northern Ireland.”

The winter wreath workshop will be led by Arts Facilitator Madeline McGreevy, who has been running artisan workshops across Northern Ireland for many years.

“Her passion for keeping traditional crafts alive was sparked by working as an Education Officer at a national museum before developing her own company Kathleen’s Attic.

“She has a wealth of creative experience and is skilled at a range of local crafts.”
