Crafts for Kids with the UHEC: Kid's Wood Inlay Workshop- ONLINE

 Registration is closed for this event
Young artists will learn about Ukrainian Hutsul-style wood work crafts & wood inlay and create their own wood inlay inspired craft.

Inlaid woodwork & wood carvings are one of the most well-known aspects of Ukrainian folk art. For many centuries, Ukrainians carved wooden plates, spoons, bowls, canes, boxes, candlesticks, crosses, sleds, frames, and other larger objects to be used for both the decorative and applied arts. These objects were made of solid wood, first painted or stained, then geometric patterns and designs were carved by hand, and the details were painted or further decorated through the addition of inlaid design elements made of colored wood, bone, metal wire, pearls or beads. 

In this workshop, young artists will learn about Ukrainian Hutsul-style wood work crafts & wood inlay and create their own wood inlay inspired craft. 

You must provide your own supplies as listed below and in the packet. 

Suitable for grade school aged children (and children of all ages).

Taught by Oksana Pasakas, UHEC Education Programs Coordinator. 

This event will take place ONLINE, but registration is required.
