Holiday Wreath Making Workshop

On December 3, 2020, the Friends of Robinson Gardens hosted a holiday wreath making class for our members. There were participants from the sold out in-person event at the Virginia Robinson Gardens, as well as members participating online. The workshop was taught by the talented, world renowned florist Ines Garstecki of Flowermaid, who is a past Garden Tour floral designer. (Visit Ines’ website at and to see the VRG Highlight Article on Ines, click here.) Each guest was provided a floral kit of evergreens, holiday ribbon, dried fruits, cinnamon sticks, and exotic grasses to make a unique and long lasting wreath to survive the holiday season.

After a long Covid shut in, it was a happy time to spend time with friends and see some familiar faces. VRG is hoping to bring our members more Covid safe in-person and online classes in 2021. Check out the creations by our members from both in-person and online!
