Holiday Wreath-Making Workshop Adults

Kick off the holiday season in this workshop where you will create a fresh and natural wreath to adorn your home. We’ll provide basic instruction and all the necessary supplies to create an 18” mixed green wreath, and you’ll choose from the available greenery to make a wreath that’s uniquely you.

Not only will you create a wreath to enjoy this season, but you’ll leave with the knowledge and components to create a new wreath the next time a Whidbey windstorm graces you with an abundance of greenery. Re-use your wreath form and wire year after year, and this wreath becomes free annual craft tradition.

Fee includes wreath form, wire, fresh evergreens and berries, and light refreshments. We’ll provide clippers.

Optional: you may bring unusual hardy greens or your favorite ornaments to embellish to your wreath.

Instructor: Carrie Monforte, Recreation Supervisor and craft dabbler. programs@whidbey.com

Whidbey Island Dance Theatre's 27th season of THE NUTCRACKER

A holiday delight for the whole family!​

WIDT's production of this classical ballet set to the music of Tchaikovsky features many of the beloved characters and themes of the traditional ballet but with a Whidbey Island twist.

Join us as Clara and the Nutcracker Prince travel through a hidden magical cave deep in the Puget Sound where mermaids swim among silky strands of seaweed and dance on pearls. Share their wonder as they stroll through the wild and lush Enchanted Forest where they meet our graceful Faerie Queen and Forest King, and confront a dreadful Dragon. Marvel at the fleeting elegance of our beautiful flowers and swallowtail butterflies. And of course, meet the matron of all forest creatures, Madame Bumble, who introduces us to some of the most adorable critters we have ever seen.

WIDT takes pride in our local version of the classical ballet. The high quality of production and the amazing skill of our dancers combine to provide you with a show rivaling what is available in cities 10 times our size. Many have made this show a family holiday tradition! We invite you, and your family, to join them - spare yourself the ferry, traffic, parking, and cost of Seattle productions and enjoy this wonderful Whidbey show this holiday season.
