Keep the Tradition Going!
May Day Baskets in the 19th and 20th Centuries was a springtime tradition in America and other countries. Having but disappeared from our culture, this spring ritual of making and giving little floral baskets filled with candies, nuts, flowers, or little presents, people today know little or nothing about. Traditionally secretly given to someone you love to receive a special surprise. Participants in the workshop will learn of the custom and create May Baskets using traditional colorful crepe paper floral techniques. Originality will be encouraged for future creations. Open to all age levels.
