Learn How to Decorate for the Holidays with Natural Materials

Learn how to create natural decorations this holiday season at the W.K. Kellogg Biological Station (KBS) with two special workshops.

The Holiday Wreath Workshop will be held on December 6 (taught by Sherri Snyder of Gull Lake Landscape Company), and the Holiday Arrangement Workshop will be held on December 12th. Both events will give participants the chance to create their own holiday décor pieces from natural materials, learn from experts, and enjoy a light meal of delicious seasonal soup, bread and beverages.

Both events will be held from 6pm to 9pmw.k in the KBS Carriage House Classroom, located at 3700 E. Gull Lake Dr., in Hickory Corners. The cost for each event is $45/participant (or $40 for current KBS members), which includes a meal and all supplies, although bringing your own shears or sharp pruners and garden gloves is recommended.
