Now in their 36th year, Monticello’s annual Wreath Workshops are once again back in-person for 2022. These fan favorite events will be led by Monticello Guide and Floral Designer, Lou Hatch, Monticello Curator of Plants, Peggy Cornett, and a talented team of workshop instructors. Attendees will create a beautiful door decoration that will last throughout the season.
Ask our Gardens & Grounds staff to share their favorite part of preparing for, harvesting and presenting Monticello’s annual wreath workshops and you’ll likely hear the same answer: seeing the beautiful creations participants have made at the end of their class!
