The workshop will be held in Broad Brook and more details will be furnished to you as we get closer to your private workshop.


Please note, in the event of any major snowstorms, your workshop date will be moved to Tuesday, December 10th (as a backup date) in the evening hours, but usually THIS is not required! Santa doesn’t need snow until Christmas eve!

Your fee includes fresh greens for your one item of choice and we will ask you which item you wish to make prior to the workshop. If you decide to make a wreath, take note, you will  need to bring your own green florist wire on a paddle. We will give you details on which to get closer as we approach your date. Kissing ball makers do not require any wire, nor do Candle Centerpiece Makers. Mechanics for your item is included (wreath frame, ball mechanics, candle, etc.).

And lastly, sometimes a glue gun with glue sticks is handy to bring to attach decor, but not mandatory. You will bring your own decor, such as ribbons and whatever decor you like to dress up your very own made holiday creation – and Cathy T will give you information details on that as well prior to your workshop. We also teach you how to make a ribbon in the workshop the easy way.
