The community is invited to attend the Sonoma Ecology Center’s annual holiday wreath-making workshop from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday, Dec. 7, at the Sonoma Garden Park.

Renowned Sonoma Valley florist Natasha Drengson will guide participants to create stylish winter wreaths using local, natural materials. Participants will use dried flower-heads, twigs, branches, and other seasonal garden “cast-offs” to lend form, texture, and beauty to their holiday wreaths.

The Sonoma Ecology Center will provide basic workshop materials. Attendees are encouraged to bring their own materials, such as stems of berries, dried flowers, seedpods, canning lids, burlap, garden clippings, ribbon, or any other small items that will lend unexpected fun and whimsy to their one-of-a-kind creations. Participants are also encouraged to bring their own pruners, scissors, wire-cutters, and/or knives.

All participants will leave with their hand-crafted wreaths.

This two-hour, family friendly hands-on workshop is open to the public, and is suitable for all levels of experience. Warm beverages and refreshments will be served.

Workshop fee varies from $25 for small wreaths, $35 for large. Members of the Sonoma Ecology Center receive $5 off. All proceeds benefit Sonoma Garden Park, an educational campus of Sonoma Ecology Center.
