Wreath Making

These are photographs of residents and staff of Camphill Milton Keynes making Christmas Wreaths to hang on the doors of our houses.
wreath is an assortment of flowers, leaves, fruits, twigs, or various materials that is constructed to form a ring.
In English-speaking countries, wreaths are used typically as household ornaments, most commonly as an Advent and Christmas decoration. They are also used in ceremonial events in many cultures around the globe. They can be worn as a chaplet around the head, or as a garland around the neck. Wreaths have much history and symbolism associated with them.
They are usually made from evergreens and symbolize strength, as evergreens last even throughout the harshest winters. Bay laurel may also be used; bay laurel wreaths are known as laurel wreaths.
