Student Film: Winter Wreaths

In her first video project Abby, a student at our Bennington learning center, brings you along on a class excursion to The Tutorial Center at Smokey House where they got a hands-on, start-to-finish lesson in making festive evergreen wreaths.

After the event Abby used photographs, video, and voice-over narration to put together this great movie about the experience.
