Tomtens and Holiday Ornaments

Course Overview

The belief in tomtens – or rural elves – started in Sweden and continues to be part of the folklore of the winter/holiday season. Tomtens are often portrayed both helpful and mischievous: they’ll do the chores, and then steal the cookies. Sound like a young person you know? No wonder these colorful, mythical creatures are also said to be the protectors of children. Felt tomtens and other holiday ornaments in this course. Learn the basics of sculptural and needle felting while connecting with this old Scandinavian myth. In addition, practice your skills by making flat or three dimensional ornaments.  Enrich the holiday experience for a young person in your life; this course is open to kids ages 10+ assisted by an adult.
