Create Holiday Wreaths and Bows at Dec. 5th Albany Museum of Art Funshop

Staff Report

Tuesday, December 1st, 2020

Capture the holiday spirit with a unique wreath and bow that you will create at the Albany Museum of Art Wreath & Bow Funshops set for Saturday, Dec 5, 2020. 

The two funshops will be led by florist Tricia Moreschi. The morning class will be 10 am-noon at the Albany Museum of Art, 311 Meadowlark Drive. The evening class will be 5-7 pm at Pretoria Fields Collective, 120 Pine Ave.

“You’ll learn how to create your wreath from fresh Christmas greenery,” Annie Vanoteghem, AMA director of education and public programming, said. “You’ll also learn how to make full, beautiful bows to accent your wreath or wrapped gifts.

“These are skills that you will be able to use later. Whenever an occasion comes up that you want to celebrate with a wreath, you’ll know how to make it yourself. Plus, anytime you make a wreath or give a gift, you’ll know how to create a fabulous homemade bow to add to it!”

Vanoteghem said the funshops are limited to 12 participants each to ensure adequate space for social distancing. “We want everyone to have fun, but we also want to ensure that health guidelines are followed so that all of our participants are safe,” she said. 

The cost for the class is $15 for AMA members and $20 for future members.
