Victorian Ornamental Pomanders & Paper Treasures
October 23, 2021. 11:00 AM to 1:00 PM by registration only!
We are excited to introduce a new but very limited volunteer program to help the Friends make handmade ornaments and kits for retail in our bookstore/gallery. Volunteer Kathleen Pereles, a newcomer to our area, will lead the workshops based on her research and experience with Victorian arts. Join us to learn about these fascinating and practical arts of the Victorian era and make an ornament for yourself, as well as assembling ornaments and kits for retail in the Friends’ shop.
The first workshop – Saturday, October 23, features orange spice pomanders. These make beautiful holiday décorations and are fragrant “potpourri” balls for your closets all year round.
We’ll also make some fanciful paper ornaments that day.
Please note: Age 15 and up. Masks are required and NPS prefers that volunteers within federal buildings are vaccinated.
