Holiday Wreath-Decorating Workshops November 16-18

Escape from the world of possible Covid and daily demands and gather friends to bring on the holiday spirit by decorating a premade evergreen wreath. Since the number of wreaths available and decorating sessions is always limited, it’s important to mark your calendars now, make your own early reservation, and get the word out by all your usual social media means to those you’d like to involve in this fun and uplifting experience. You can access the 2023 poster here to send it on to friends you think may be interested.

At the workshops, participants choose from an array of especially collected greens, berries, nuts and other natural materials, bows, and different embellishments that they would like to add to their premade evergreen wreath. Wire, glue guns, and other supplied equipment make the decorating easy and successful. Open to the public, the workshops will take place on November 16-18 in Willard Hall at St. Luke’s Church, 313 Main Street (Route 11 West) and will again benefit both the church and the Chester Conservation Committee’s youth environmental-camp scholarships.

To be assured of a wreath and their preferred session, participants must preregister early. There are eight different workshops: Thursday November 16, 9-10:30 AM or 1 - 2:30 PM or 6:30 - 8 PM; Friday November 17, 9 - 10:30 AM or 1 - 2:30 PM or 6:30 - 8 PM; and Saturday November 18, 9 - 10:30 AM or 1 - 2:30 PM. Each session will offer all the essentials to create a very personal, one- of-a-kind wreath. Men and women are welcome to come alone or register with a friend or group, and participants are encouraged to bring clippers and glue guns if they have them.

A $5 early-bird discount on the fee of $50 per wreath will apply to those who preregister and pay by Friday November 10. Checks should be made out to St. Luke’s Church, designated in the memo line for the Wreath Workshop, and mailed to Lillian Willis at PO Box 318, Chester, VT 05143. For additional information and registration, please contact Lillian Willis at (802) 875- 1340 or

This is a great opportunity to support two good causes, start getting ready for the holidays, and
have fun doing it! Please spread the word to family and friends.
