Parents from both the Prep and Upper Schools felt the full force of the Christmas spirit when they took part in some online wreath making workshops last week.  The first ‘virtual’ joint venture between the Prep Guild and the Parents’ Guild, in collaboration with Prep School parent Lucy Copeland of Howbury Farm Flowers, it was a truly festive affair.

Run over 3 sessions, Lucy provided all the components needed to make a beautiful Christmas wreath, then expertly guided and supported each group as they let their creative juices flow. Even though participants were not able to get together in person, Lucy ensured that the event was tremendous fun and offered many hints and tips to help everyone create a beautiful wreath. We think you will agree that the results speak for themselves. 

Lucy was given the unenviable task of selecting a winning wreath from each session.  The winners, who will be treated to a tour of Howbury Farm Flowers’ walled garden to pick a bucket of flowers, were as follows; 

Thursday morning session – Alessia Palmieri 

Friday morning session – Shereen Rahwangi

Friday evening session – Alison Ainsworth

The Prep and Parents’ Guild would like to thank Lucy for all her help and support in running their first ever online event.  They hope to run the event again next year, but next time in person!
