In this holiday-inspired workshop, Jacqui Mehring will instruct us in the technique of creating woven paper ornaments. Beginning as a tradition in Finland, then adopted later by other countries, these constructions look complex yet are simple to make. They look beautiful in white but can also be made in many variations. Using a single color or two colors of paper, metallic paper, or adding glitter and other adornments are just some of the possible options. Whether you hang them in a window, put them on top of your tree or give them as gifts to family or friends, you’re sure to be pleased with the results. Registration is required. Class size is limited to 10.

This Yoga Nidra practice will introduce you to a deep state of restful awareness, with a focus on releasing tension in the body and obtaining relief from mental and physical manifestations of stress. No previous yoga experience is necessary. Register at the class.
