Explore the Yuletide traditions and rituals connected to the abundance of seasonal plants that can be found in Dove Cottage garden and the surrounding woodland, and create aromatic and decorative items to take home with you! You will also receive a booklet of instructions, templates and herbal traditions that you can try for yourself at home.

This workshop is led by local herbalist Lesley Hoyle, owner of Windermere-based business Sophiology, and includes a vegetarian buffet supper.
