Christmas Creative Workshop at Ballynahinch Castle Hotel

If you feel an overwhelming need to channel your inner Martha in preparation for an all-out Yuletide, we’ve got the perfect workshop for you.?Ballynahinch Castle Hotel ?is hosting a two day hands-on session with floral designer Ann Marie O’Leary ?November 16th to November 18th where you’ll learn how to create killer festive?arrangements from swags to wreaths.

You’ll find plenty of natural inspiration for your Christmas creations in the dreamy surroundings of the castle, beginning every day with a good old forage in the Connemara wilds for foliage and branches to incorporate into your creative designs.

?Ballynahinch Castle is a very special place,? says Ann Marie, ?and the woods and grounds are magical and evocative, full of beautiful branches, leaves, berries and lichens, and I’m looking forward to working with the class to create some stunning seasonal designs. As a place to host a creative gathering like this, Ballynahinch is perfect – a luxurious and cosy base and an inspirational backdrop to decorative work.?

Workshop fees are €1500 per person sharing, or €1620 per single room, which includes all accommodation, meals, use of your own set of floristry tools and all sundries and props necessary for creating your Christmas arrangements. Each attendee will also ?be provided with a welcome goodie basket including a notebook, pencil and ?festive decorations and baubles.
