Offline Moment: Christmas Wreath Making

Image: Shuttershock

Welcome to your weekly offline moment, where we explore different ways to quieten your mind by taking you offline and back to real life. Our hectic modern lives are increasingly dominated by screens, and as a digital company we know first hand how tough it can be to take a break from that addictive bluish glow.

If you have been out and about recently, or even just at home watching TV, there’s no escaping the fact that it’s nearly Christmas. (Don’t worry, we’re not about to shock you with how many shopping days are left til Christmas! It’s not our style.) Instead, we’re embracing the crafty side of Christmas preparation. Many of us have warm, nostalgic memories of  sitting at home making Christmas decorations as children. Why not revisit those wonderful memories and with a glass of mulled wine to boot? This winter we’re going nuts for Christmas Wreath making workshops. A place where you can get your creative juices flowing, meet some new people and get in the Christmas spirit all at the same time. The Vendeur thoroughly enjoy the workshops run by Me and My Bloomers in London, however a quick google search will reveal a selection of workshops taking place near you.

We can’t all be Kirstie Allsopp but with a guided workshop wreath making is a lot of fun and really easy. Trust us, you’re more green fingered than you realise. Here are some workshop ideas to get you in the mood. (Don’t forget to book your space.)
