 Christmas Wreath Workshop 2021

West Berkshire Villagers | Events | What’s On | Things to Do

Come and join us for a fun-filled morning creating your very own Christmas wreath. We will show you how to use a 12” frame and decorate it with greenery gathered from the garden and the footpath that runs past the farm. We will also have a supply of additional dried foliage and other adornments for you to choose from, including cones, berries, ribbons, lights etc. If you have any of your own personal decorations that you would like to incorporate into your wreath please bring these along as well, and a pair of secateurs or old scissors.

This will be a creative and relaxed workshop to get you into the Christmas spirit - why not come with a friend or relative to make it even more special! We will be serving mince pies…

Included on the day:

-        All equipment you will need, foliage and natural decorations

-        Expert tuition

-        1 to 1 guidance

-        Detailed demonstrations

-        A selection of tea, freshly brewed coffee, biscuits, mince pies and mulled wine!

And of course you take your wonderful creations from the day. If you share any photographs of your day here and/or your finished work, we’d love to see them so please tag us @micklemsfarmcreativeworkshops or use the hashtag #micklemsfarmcreativeworkshops.

Attendance Mode

Following government announcements, we will be reopening on Monday 17th May. We have contacted all students who had booked onto rescheduled workshops, if you have booked and haven’t received the email then please check your junk. If you are booked to attend a workshop then you will be offered the opportunity to hold your place until it’s rescheduled or a refund. If you hold your place and cannot attend the new date then you will be offered a refund or the opportunity to book onto another workshop. If you have booked using a gift card, you will be offered the opportunity to hold your place until the new date is announced or a credit note.

Over the first lockdown, we spent time implementing various measures to make our studio as safe as possible for our students and tutors.

With just under 1000 sq ft of floor space, a new large demo area with a wall mounted monitor allows students to be socially distanced during tutor demonstrations and our ten work stations are now set further apart with more open flow areas in the centre of the studio.

We have a central hands-free hand sanitising station which students and tutors use upon entry and throughout the day.

We use our very own fogging system using anti-viral disinfectant (tested against Coronavirus) after every workshop.

We are providing disposable cutlery at the tea and coffee station and paper hand towels for hand washing. We ask students to bring their own mugs and face masks.

As far as the weather allows, the large patio doors onto the garden will be kept open and we will have tables and chairs for eating lunch outside.

Students and tutors will be able to use our open plan kitchen/dining space and large conservatory to enjoy their lunch socially distanced and as the weather gets warmer we’ll have marquees erected in the grounds for students to use.

We hope that these measures will reassure you that we have done as much as we can to ensure your safety when attending workshops.

    Lîla Dance: The Hotel Experience Arlington Arts

    West Berkshire Villagers | Events | What’s On | Things to Do. A man checks into a hotel the night before his wedding, unaware that things may not be as they seem. As the clock ticks, the walls around him seem to blur and dissolve as fragments of memories tumble into the room in the form of past lovers. They fall from the ceilings, crawl out from under the bed and step out of wardrobes to face him once more with full force and in vivid colours. The Hotel Experience becomes a night of doubt, hope, crisis, and unexpected encounters. When the sun rises, he has an important decision to make.

    Join Lîla Dance on stage for the show as part of the extended cast by joining the workshop. This day is aimed at dancers aged 14 years and above. Call the Arlington Arts box office to book your space in the workshop.

    Check in to your local venue, come and watch your friends and family guest star alongside our four mesmerising dancers in this extraordinary night of dance. Come and find out why Lîla Dance are rapidly becoming one of Britain’s fastest-growing dance companies, with a reputation for redefining community involvement in professional productions.
