Christmas wreath-making is an exciting task in the run-up to Christmas. Whether you want to make a traditional Christmas wreath or get creative with some stylish modern alternative designs, the perfect wreath-making workshop for you is being held by the Ryebank gallery. On Friday, December 9 Carrie will be demonstrating and encouraging participants to create their own fabulous Christmas decoration. The workshop begins at 6pm, lasts two hours and includes all materials and refreshments: www.ryebank.gallery/workshops.

The word “wreath” comes from the word “writhen”, an old English word meaning to writhe or to twist. The art of hanging wreaths originated with the Romans who hung them on their doors as a sign of victory and of their status in society. This was later adopted by Christians who hung wreaths to observe the Advent season. The wreath is viewed as an invitation to the spirit of Christmas to enter homes to bring luck to those who dwell within. Its circular shape represents eternity, and the often-used evergreen symbolises growth and everlasting life.
