Reign in the holidays with a beautiful handmade wreath! Wreaths are a beautiful and welcoming adornment, whether for yourself or to give as a gorgeous holiday or hostess gift. In this workshop we will learn how to make a hand wired wreath on a metal frame, creating layers of texture from a variety of fragrant and unscented greens, sculptural branches, and embellishing with moss, berries, pods and grasses. For the finishing touch we will add beautiful satin ribbon to hang the wreath from.

Rachel's lifelong love of flowers started as a little girl roller skating around the neighborhood with rubber bands on her wrist, picking flowers and selling small bouquets to her neighbors. She founded fioribei floral design studio in 2001, specializing in seasonal, locally grown flowers for weddings. Her work has been featured in Martha Stewart Weddings and ruffledblog.com. 

Rachel's work in flowers, and later on an organic farm, was a constant reminder of the environmental impacts that stem from the agricultural industry. She returned to school and just recently graduated from UC Berkeley where she studied agriculture and the environment, in hopes to make a difference in our current system.
