Kwinana residents will be able to hand-make their own Christmas wreaths thanks to an event being held by the Koorliny Arts Centre this week.

Sold out again in its second year, this month’s workshop will bring community members together during the festive season to do something fun and creative.

Koorliny Arts Centre marketing officer Monique Mulligan said the event had been a huge success since it first began in 2020.

“We trialled this workshop in December 2020 and it sold out. It was a terrific night of creativity and connection, and over too soon.

“This year we offered two workshop dates and they were sold out within a week of advertising.”

Local florist Genevieve Burke from I’d Rather Wear Roses will facilitate this year’s workshop and teach punters how to weave their own Christmas creations using dried and fresh flowers and foliage.

Ms Mulligan said it was important to connect with community members during the holiday season.

“People crave connection and even more so during the holiday season, but it can also be a time of pressure, anxiety and loneliness,” she said.

“Holding events like these workshops allows time out from the seasonal merry-go-round in a connected, creative and welcoming environment.”
