Holiday Wreath Workshop


Conquer Covid separation and bring on some joyous holiday spirit by decorating a premade evergreen wreath. The number of participants in each

session is limited to allow for safe social distancing. As of this moment, masks will be required.

At the workshops, participants may choose from an array of especially collected greens, berries, nuts, and other natural materials, bows, and different embellishments that they can 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 18-20 in Willard Hall at St. Luke’s Church, 313 Main Street

(Route 11 West) in Chester, VT, and will again benefit both the church and Chester Conservation Committee’s youth environmental-camp scholarships.

Participants must preregister early to be assured of a wreath and their preferred session. There are seven different workshops:

Thursday November 18, 1-2:30 PM or 6:30-8 PM;

Friday November 19, 9-10:30 AM or 1-2:30 PM or 6:30-8 PM; and

Saturday November 20, 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 tentative fee of $50 per wreath will apply to those who preregister and pay by Friday November 5. 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, 802-875-1340,

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