PAVUK WORKSHOP WITH BOZENA HRYCYNA
Learn to make a simple straw 'pavuk' for Christmas
Monday, December 18, 2023 @ 6 - 9 PM
Shevchenko Museum, 1604 Bloor Street West, Toronto
Learn to make a simple straw “pavuk”, used to trap the bad energy and release good energy into the home. This craft harkens from Northern and Eastern Europe and can be found in most places where grain growing (and straw) is a key component of people’s lives. “Pavuk" means spider in Ukrainian, and is considered a benevolent presence-- thus these web-like mobiles bring good fortune and blessings to the home.
In this workshop you’ll get the chance to learn the basic principles of the craft and create your own delicate mobile to hang in your home. Experience the golden light and sacred geometry as you work with the simple gifts of wheat and rye straw, linen thread, and beeswax. All materials will be provided, and some grown by the instructor Bozena Hrycyna in her garden in the Madawaska Valley!
