A swag is like a wreath only vertical!
And what happens when you gather the freshest fir, pine, cedar, juniper, winterberries, boxwood, eucalyptus, cones and other fun materials, plus a swag base, wire, YOU, and expert instruction on a Sunday afternoon in November? Everyone goes home with a fabulous fresh swag that will stay vibrant on your door throughout the winter! Join us at Grand River Cellars for Swags n’ Wine on Sunday November 19th at 1pm for 90 minutes of creative fun. You’ll learn a simple technique for making this winter swag from longtime wreath maker, Maggie Fusco of The Wood Road Salad Farm in Madison. Maggie has been making winter wreaths, swags, and table arrangements with fresh materials for over 20 years, plus creating outdoor winter planters for clients in both public and private spaces, and leading workshops for garden clubs. Class is limited to 25. Fee is $50 which includes all materials plus a glass of wine to toast your success!
Finished swag sizes are 20”-24” long. Swags made using these materials will look similar but not exactly like the photo. Materials vary each year but are always beyond the ordinary and each participant makes it their own!
Class begins promptly at 1pm. Plan to arrive at least 15 minutes ahead of time to check in and receive your complimentary glass of wine. Winery opens at noon for lunch before class and is open until 8pm for more food, fun, and wine after class!
