Wreath-Making with Holly Carlisle | A Member-Exclusive Webinar

Wreath-Making with Holly Carlisle
A Virtual Demonstration Exclusively for Our Members

Instructor: Holly Carlisle, ROSEGOLDEN

Wednesday, December 2 | 6–7 p.m.

Join us online via Zoom!

Cost: $25 (includes demonstration + 10-inch grapevine wreath*)

Discover how easy and fun it is to make your own wreath for any season by joining Birmingham-based floral designer and artist Holly Carlisle for this fun virtual demonstration! Starting with an inexpensive grapevine wreath, you’ll learn how to incorporate foraged greenery and natural materials from around your yard for a wreath that captures your decor. This special offering will include a virtual Q&A with Holly from her studio, ROSEGOLDEN (; Instagram @hollymcarlisle). We encourage you to watch the demonstration, ask questions, then gather what you need (and rewatch the demo if you’d like) to create your special wreath.

Member Registrants: Your 10-inch wreath will be available for curbside pickup at Birmingham Botanical Gardens the week of November 30–December 4. Watch for an email with more details.

Not available at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, December 2?
No worries! Register and we'll send you the link to watch at your convenience!
