Welcome to Koster's gardens at the midsummer wreath workshop on 23 June!
We tie wreaths together with wild and cultivated flowers. Mathilda and Helena share different techniques for how to tie a midsummer wreath. One tied to a frame using steel wire. But also a wreath without any aids at all, a wreath completely tied by flowers themselves. After the demonstration, the participants themselves can choose what kind of wreath they want to form. After completing the course, all participants are allowed to take their wreaths home. Ready for the next day's midsummer celebration!
We are so proud to announce that this extremely important course will be held on Kosters Trädgårdar. We will examine the underlying assumptions of the current culture of consumerism and economic globalization, and encourage exploration of ways to contribute to the emergence of a culture of sustainability, compassion and equity.
