The classes launched earlier this month and are available exclusively to the Oxford Street branch every Thursday from 1 December, with the next one being held on 15 December.

The 'Real Tree Rules' masterclass will feature a John Lewis expert navigate real tree rules with a step-by-step guide to getting the most out of a real Christmas tree.  

The 'Real Tree Rules' session is running alongside other Christmas tree-themed masterclasses that John Lewis has been hosting for the last month. 

The 'Treetorial' sessions are offering customers the opportunity to pick up top tips from an expert tree stylist to help them create a Christmas tree that will be the focal point of any home this festive season. Customers can choose from masterclasses, including 'The Best Dressed Tree, where tree stylists are showing how to get started, and helping to choose a theme suited to a particular home so shoppers can make the most of their tree.

Shoppers will be guided through this year's key trends and offered helpful hints on where and how to style and balance baubles, to the failsafe formulas for choosing lights to help a tree twinkle, all allowing customers to create a Christmas centrepiece to celebrate.  

The 'Showstopper' masterclass will share the secrets of a head turning tree with helpful hacks on creating the perfect silhouette using expert tweaking techniques, to this year's fashionable favourites and decorations to covet. The 'Family Tree' masterclass will show customers how to ignite children's imaginations this Christmas, with John Lewis experts sharing the secrets of transforming a tree into an adventure playground for the whole family with a collection of fun characters, cuddly animals and colourful lights.  

John Lewis recently partnered with Denby to rewrite dinner party rules and also opened a winter rooftop pop-up at its Oxford Street store, giving guests the opportunity to hire private dining lodges and take part in a range of masterclasses.
