Join artist Bonnie Conley and Museum staff to learn the ancient art of making Motanka. A Motanka makes an eco-friendly cultural gift for a housewarming, wedding, or Christmas present! Suitable for participants aged 12 to 112. Children younger than 12 may participate if accompanied by an adult.
Motanka-making is an ancient practice. Initially fashioned as a domestic symbol of fertility and household guardians, these dolls played an important role in the everyday life of Ukrainians in the old days, and you can still find them in many houses today.
All materials are included in workshop cost and are supplied by the Museum. However, you’re welcome to bring your own supplies to make your Motanka more personal, including fabric, embroidery thread, wool, dried herbs and wheat, ribbons, and other decorations. At the end of the workshop at the Museum, you will go home with one 10-inch Motanka and all the skills you need to make Motanka at home.
Cost: $55 plus tax for members, $65 plus tax for non-members.
Limit of 15 participants per workshop.
