POSTPONED – JAN. 8 | Ukrainian Embroidery

This event has been cancelled for the month of January. An update for the month of February will be posted in the coming weeks.

POSTPONED – Learn about the art of embroidery through paint!

What are those mysterious sacred geometrical designs hidden in our grandmother’s treasure chest? They are not just circles, lozenges, branches and spirals. These figures were created centuries ago and represent many unique symbols. This was at a time when our ancestors had a close magical connection with the world of Nature: plants, animals, fields
and heavenly bodies. They drew their destiny using symbols of the Sun, Earth, Universe and Family, reproducing them on fabrics, creating mysterious ancestral symbols as amulets, as a kind of family code.

Join us for a workshop focused on the art of Ukrainian embroidery through paint. This workshop will focus on patterns developed and native to Ukraine. Participants will recreate and create their own pattern using paint and paper. The goal is to create a community pattern.

Date: Saturday, January 8
Time: 12:00 PM – 3:00 PM
