Free Sustainable Christmas Workshops at the National Botanic Garden of Wales

With a seasonal series of workshops and events, we’re aiming to reduce the excess, waste and stress often associated with Christmas.

In a time when we’re all looking to be a bit more environmentally-friendly and reduce our use of single-use plastics, why not learn how to decorate your own brown wrapping paper, how to create a wreath which doubles-up as a bird feeder and how to produce beautiful cyanotype gifts and tags plus much more.

With weekly themes, Growing the Future‘s FREE, ethical workshops for adults will teach you how to reuse and recycle items to create your own wrapping, gifts and decorations. Please book workshops via the Garden’s Eventbrite page. Please note that the free workshops do not include entry to the Garden.
