The Festive Season at Hill Close Gardens – Drawing Workshop

9th December, 2023

As the days get shorter and the Winter Solstice approaches we traditionally bring evergreen leaves, cones and berries into our houses and create festive decorations to herald Christmas and brighten the darkness of the winter months.

This drawing workshop will give you the opportunity to select from a range of natural sprigs and sprays gathered from the gardens and to embellish these from a collection of decorative additions (ribbon, candles, glass balls, and sparkle!). You will be encouraged to create a design that could be printed as a festive card, place setting or print for your family and friends.

Tickets are £12. Please click here for more details and to book your place.

Many of the Elves are coughing and sneezing and the others are too busy getting all the presents ready in Santas Workshop to help at our session.

We are so sorry to let you down – but we do have the ‘Grow and Explore’ family Drop In on Thursday 14thDecember, 9.30am – 11.00am when there will be lots of Christmassy crafts and festive fun for pre-schoolers and their big people.
