Common FAQs for our Wreath Crafternoons!

What is the cost?

Workshops are free! #thanksLangford

Attendees are encouraged to consider making a donation to the Goldstream Food Bank!

How long will the wreath making take?

Workshops are self-paced once we start adding the greenery, and you can expect it to take approximately 45-60 minutes.

What ages are the workshops suited for?

Anyone is welcome to attend; however, children under 10 will be asked to work alongside a parent or guardian who isn’t already busy creating their own wreath.

It’s Winter, won’t it be cold?

It might be so please DRESS WARM! These sessions will be happening outdoors regardless of weather or temperature. There will be tents to keep us dry but please bundle up – a toque, scarf and a winter jacket wouldn’t be overdressed!

Should I bring anything?

If you have a pair of handheld floral / garden clippers, we would really appreciate if you brought those! If you don’t, we will have some sanitized ones on site.

Where should I park?

There is a small lot by the West Shore Chamber of Commerce, right by the playground; however, we recommend simply grabbing some street parking on Aldwynd Road.

Who do I contact with questions?

You can contact us directly through Eventbrite, or email marley@thegoodparty.ca

 

Common FAQs for our Pom Pom Garland Crafternoons!

What will this workshop look like?

During these free and festive outdoor workshops, you will create a garland featuring 8 – 12 pom poms in a holiday colour palette. These garlands will look great on your mantle, on your tree, or wrapped around a gift!

Workshops include step-by-step beginner paced instruction and all supplies that you can take home to continue the crafting fun whenever you want! You’ll take home the pom pom maker & some extra yarn so you can keep up the crafting and teach your family and friends!
