FALMOUTH — University of Maine Cooperative Extension plans to host a wreath making workshop at 1 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 2, at the UMaine Gardens at Tidewater Farm, 200 Presumpscot Point Road.

The workshop will offer participants the opportunity to craft their own holiday balsam fir wreaths. Participants can assemble them using a single-faced, 10-inch easy clamp ring, which can create a wreath of up to 22 inches in size. They also can incorporate ribbons, ornaments, pinecones and decorations into their wreaths.

Experienced instructors will provide attendees with step-by-step assembly instructions and share tips and techniques for creating wreaths. The workshop is suitable for all skill levels, from beginners to experienced crafters.

“We are thrilled to offer these DIY Wreath Making Workshops as a fun and festive way for people to get into the holiday spirit,” said Pamela Hargest, horticulture professional with UMaine Extension, according to a news release from the extension. “Wreath making is a timeless tradition that allows individuals to express their creativity and add a personal touch to their holiday decorations.”

Participants can bring their own gardening gloves and any additional decorative elements they may wish to incorporate into their wreaths.

Space for the workshop is limited; registration is required. The program fee is offered on a sliding scale of $25-$35, with all proceeds supporting the educational mission of the gardens at Tidewater Farm.

For more information or to request a reasonable accommodation, contact Hargest at or 207-949-4524.
