Bring a piece of history into your home this Christmas.
Back by popular demand, our Christmas Wreath Making Workshops are not to be missed.
Join the Master Ropemakers in the festive surrounds of Commissioner’s House. Bring your wreath making ideas, chose your colour scheme, get creative and learn how to make a unique festive wreath to hang proudly on your door.
The base of your Christmas Wreath will formed from rope made by our expert craftsmen and women on our historic ropewalk, using the same techniques used for producing the finest ropes for the Royal Navy, including Nelson’s VICTORY.
Please note the Historic Dockyard is closed to visitors and it will not be possible to explore the wider Dockyard on the day of your workshop.
2023 workshop dates

The workshop will start with a welcome drink of mulled wine, tea or coffee and mince pie, before Alex Rowling, Managing Director of Master Ropemakers, guides you through the techniques for creating a traditional door wreath.
You’ll then take your place at the crafting tables and let loose to create your own wreath. Decorations will be provided, from foliage to ribbons and festive materials.
The workshops last for approximately 2 hours.
