Wycinanki Workshop with Becky Rehl (Festival of Christmas and Midwinter Traditions)
December 29, 2021 @ 11:30 am - 12:30 pm
This decorative folk art dates back to the mid-1800s, and may have its origins in the decorative snipping of sheepskins, with sheep shears, for window coverings in peasant homes. Traditional designs of the Łowicz region incorporate roosters, hens, and other birds, typically with many different colors layered on a black background cut-out, as well as stylized floral motifs.
In each workshop, Becky Rehl will guide us in creating flowers or birds for up to four greeting cards.
This workshop is part of the Festival of Christmas and Midwinter Traditions. Further information on the festival and registration can be found here.
