This was originally the Jolly St Nick Gnome urn, unfortunately the gnomes were lost at sea when the freighter coming into Vancouver lost containers in the ocean. This workshop you will create a stunning fresh Christmas urn featuring an assortment of fragrant cedar, silver fir, pine, boxwood and more. Have fun choosing your decorations for your urn insert, from a huge assortment of styles and colour choices. We will have a choice of amazing designs to personalize your urn.
Party Size Bigger than 4?
Simply purchase table numbers that add up to your party size.
Example: Need a table for 7? Purchase one table of four and one table of three.
*** NOTE: Make sure that names are IDENTICAL, and we will seat you together. Different names will be treated as different tables. ***
Where are the workshops located?
All our workshops are located at 3711 King Street in Vineland at the Vineland Watering Can location. The workshops are hosted in the hoop houses situated behind the main building, unless stated otherwise. We advise parking in the neighbouring church’s parking lot as this is the closest to the classrooms.
Do I need to be talented to attend the workshop?
No, we love you just the way you are! Our workshops are designed so that everyone takes home a stunning arrangement. We only ask for you to come with a fun adventurous attitude.
How do I make a workshop purchase?
Tickets are sold by table size. The table size purchased is the total number of guests allowed to attend at your table. We need to know table size so we can properly distance everyone.
I can’t see the table size I will be needing.
Table sizes are sold for individual seating and upwards. Simply add up the number of guests who will be attending. E.g. I have 8 guests attending. Check for table sizes that add up to your number of guests in any combination. Combinations can be as follows. (4 tables of 2 =8), (2 tables of 4=8), ( 2 tables of 1, table of 2, table of 4=8), etc. Enter identical names on all tables. We will know you need to be seated at one table. If you are unable to purchase for the correct number combinations for your guests and have an additional spot that you will not be needing, you will be required to purchase the whole table for that particular workshop. E.g. I only need a table for three but a table of 4 is available. You will be required to purchase the table for 4.
