The Swenson Swedish Immigration Research Center is offering a workshop to create painted wooden God Jul (Merry Christmas) ornaments.
The class will run about two hours. In-person classes are limited to 22 people. All participants must wear a mask.
Some workshops will have an option for virtual participation at a lower cost. You will be provided with a supplies list ahead of class for the virtual option. Supplies are included at the in-person events, unless otherwise noted.
The class is part of the center's Hemslöjd workshops (pronounced hem-sloyd), which means "handicraft" in Swedish.
