Festive Wreath Workshop

Learn how to make a DIY Christmas wreath from fresh botanicals



3 hours Class size 1 to 40     label $120


In this hands-on workshop, you’ll learn how to construct and build a beautiful festive wreath. You will design, style, and create your own door/wall wreath or even a table centrepiece ready for Christmas!

Perfect for decorating inside or out, this modern yet rustic beauty will stand up to these hot Brisbane temperatures! You will be given all the materials required including a selection of fresh seasonal flowers and foliage, including eucalyptus, pine cones and Australian native flower varieties. This wreath will then dry naturally for you to use decoratively in your home throughout the year.

At the end of the class, you will take home your very own DIY Christmas wreath constructed with your favourite botanicals. This workshop is perfect for beginners and anyone looking for festive things to do in Brisbane.

Please note: This class requires at least five students to run. In the unlikely event that we don't get this number of students, we'll cancel the class and fully refund you and inform you via email, so please watch your email a few days prior to the class.



Aside from this class, Work-Shop also has the following coming up:



What you'll get
  • A selection of fresh seasonal flowers and foliage
  • A well-equipped floristry kit to use on the day
  • Take-home instructions (will be emailed to the group)
  • Awesome Christmas tunes (yes they exist!)

What to bring
  • Festive cheer!
  • BYO water
  • Wear something light/comfortable (Brissy is hot!) that you don’t mind getting a little dirty

With an innovative approach to style, Helena Rose marries clean, classic forms with fresh, feminine modernity and a playful sense of nostalgia. Bold colours, unexpected trims and high-quality materials are the signature elements that define the collection every season.

An inspired designer, Helena Rose has traversed to over twenty countries across the globe as a stylist and has an impressive presence in the pages of international fashion journals such as Jute Magazine and Dreamingless Magazine while simultaneously taking a millinery class with French Milliner Estelle Ramousee, then working under the mentorship of Couture Milliner Maor Zabar in Israel. Following her Applied Fashion Design graduation in 2010, Helena moved from Sydney to Brisbane to explore a different career path to exercise her aptitude for fashion as a headwear designer.

Since then, the offering has steadily evolved to include a range of headwear pieces that are created by hand in a small Brisbane development studio. The hats, in particular, possess a sculptural beauty while maintaining straightforward wearability–this balance perfected by hand finishes and considered design.

Mercedes Benz Fashion Week 2019 attendees first saw Helena Rose on the runway as a collaboration with designer brand Astille on SS20 collections and designed headwear pieces for Maison Garde SS19 collection.

Visors and combs were introduced with the Spring 2020 collection Le Pétale. Concise, contemporary styles are Brisbane-made in small batches from European materials, adhering to the brand’s belief in both a controlled aesthetic and quality.

Helena Rose bridal headwear pieces and accessories hold stories of memories passed down through generations and elevate any bridal outfit  which all come together into classic-elegant designs that remain spirited and refined.
