WVSU wreath-making workshops set for South Charleston and Milton

INSTITUTE, W.Va.– A series of hands-on wreath-making workshops will be held in South Charleston and Milton Dec. 4-6. Participants will learn to assemble their own holiday décor using greenery that can be found in traditional landscapes.

“We’ve been holding this workshop series for several years now, and the reception is always tremendous,” said Scott Byars, program leader for Agriculture & Natural Resources with West Virginia State University Extension Service. “We’re adding additional dates and locations this year to ensure that everyone interested has a chance to participate.”

Workshops will be held at the West Virginia Pumpkin Park in Milton Dec. 4 from 10 a.m. until noon and 4 to 7 p.m., and Dec. 5 from 10 a.m. until noon. An additional workshop will take place at the Rock Lake Community Life Center in South Charleston Dec. 6 from 10 a.m. until noon.

The workshops cost $25, which includes all the materials and decorations needed to create a beautiful holiday addition to your home. Participants can choose among wreaths, centerpieces or swag.
