DESCRIPTION: The symbol of the circle is ancient – it is immortality, victory, life, rejuvenation, renewal, hope, wholeness and welcome. The wreath, a circlet of fresh or dried elements from a harvest or garden, embodied all these meanings: crafted of leafy boughs to bare branches, flowers to fruits and everything in between, it heralded victories and prosperity in Ancient Greece and Rome to the everlasting love of religious figures in Christianity. The modern wreath continues to celebrate all that is good, beautiful, and accepting and is as varied as the modern world.  Join horticulturist and educator Kerry Ann McLean and guest floral expert Beth White in one of two separate workshops crafting two distinct holiday wreath styles:  the dried floral wreath and the fresh cut greens wreath.
