When authenticity meets creativity, it brings about art in it's purest form. This Foraged Wreath Workshop, hosted by The Seasonal Collective, set the stage for us to do just that. Led by Rachel Forrer, we started in the woods at Venture Heritage Farm, breathing in the crisp cold air and trimming branches, berries, and dried foliage. After collecting our treasures, we returned to a shop space to begin creating masterpieces. It was messy and wonderful and smelled like Christmas. Grapevines were filled with greenery and slowly took shape until wreaths were formed. I know this may seem like a simple workshop but there's something magical about using your hands and the raw elements of God's creation to form something beautiful. It makes me all warm and fuzzy inside.
