Crafts for Kids@UHEC: Wood Inlay Workshop (Virtual)

In this workshop, 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.

This is a VIRTUAL workshop. The workshop will be live, interactive and will not be recorded. 

Suitable for grade school aged children. Seating is limited to 25 participants.

You must provide your own supplies for this workshop.
