Floral designers across the country are reinventing wreaths—and sharing their secrets at workshops. Pop into one of these classes and come out a wreath making expert.

By Joanna Linberg

12/5/18 — You've heard of wine and painting classes, but have you heard of the latest girlfriend get-together, wreath making workshops? Sure, wreaths have been shelved at retail giants and garden centers for weeks now, but making one yourself is a whole new experience. Wreath workshops are the latest social event, so grab a friend, attend one of these classes, and you'll be a pro wreath maker in no time!

She shares the secrets to her style at pop-up events around New York and in the book Handpicked, her step-by-step guide to seasonal arrangements. Find workshop dates at Tin Can Studios.
