Lombok Christmas Event
Posted on December 13 2016
As it gets closer to Christmas, I am reminded of something that I have always wanted to do but never found the resources or the time to do it. That is, making my very own Christmas wreath. This year, Lombok made my dreams come true and invited me to their very first store event to find out more about the Lombok and Little Greene brands and also have the opportunity to test our creative sides by making out very own Christmas wreaths.
The first part of the session was with Little Greene, finding out about the brand's history, their diverse collections of paint products and how each collection can be applied to achieve the perfect look, from woodwork to masonry, metals and walls. Whilst I feel that I am pretty knowledgable myself on paints and finishes, the introduction was incredibly insightful, teaching even the most familiar people to the product, something new.
The second part of the session was about making dreams come true and I was let loose on the Christmas foliage to make my very first wreath! Being given a simple metal frame each one of us taking part in the workshop appeared to go for our own unique style, being able to select different tones of foliage, dried fruits, pinecones and everything else that you would associate with the Christmas season. As you can see from the images above, we all had a fantastic time and I proudly placed my wreath on my front door for the world to see! Well, my neighbours!
