Holiday Workshop- Trevor Bey

We are excited to announce this season's schedule for our much anticipated Holiday Workshops with Trevor Bey from Holiday Creation, Inc.  This is our third year working with Trevor and he just keeps getting better - and more in demand. Among his credits are designing Christmas magic for public venues like the Grove Park Inn in Asheville, a string of stores in the Bahamas as well as the East Coast (including ours), and the Panther's Football Stadium in Charlotte.  

Trevor's ability to convey in easy-to-understand steps, how to decorate your home and Christmas tree like a designer is why we invite him back.  We are fortunate to have him all to ourselves for a week in October and a weekend in November.  This year we're offering more workshops with smaller class sizes so you have more opportunity for a "hands-on" experience. 

Holiday Workshops:

Trees 101

Instructor: Trevor Bey

This "Hands-On" Workshop will cover ribbon, how to choose it, and why it is important to any design.  You will make a bow, learn how to properly prepare and "fluff" your tree for decorating, as well as the key "Seven Elements of Design" for decorating any style Chistmas tree.   You will leave this class with your own DIY bow, and the knowledge to decorate your tree like a pro.

Deck the Halls

Instructor: Trevor Bey 

This hands-on workshop will cover several ways to "deck your halls" this holiday season.  Learn the design elements to make simple swags and wreaths. Apply the same basic principles to create more elaborate garlands and swags on your bannisters and mantles.  Elements of ribbon will also be covered.

Create Your Own

Instructor: Trevor Bey 

This intermediate level class will put the words "Do-It-Yourself" to the test!  Bring in something you own which you would like to enhance for Christmas . . . A lamp, candlesticks, vase, etcetera, and we will help you create a holiday focal point using elements of design that you will translate to any room in your house.
