Motanka Doll Making Workshop


The Motanka Doll is a charming family amulet that has been decorating Ukrainian homes for more than 5000 years. It symbolises tradition and is believed to provide protection to the home.
In this 3 hour workshop you will learn how to make one… and take it home. The class is suitable for all. No sewing or stitching is required. All materials are provided.
We want this workshop to be accessible to all, especially Ukrainians who have been displaced to the UK because of the war, so we are pricing this workshop at just £5 to cover the cost of materials. However, we believe that this workshop is worth much more than that. So, if you can, we suggest an additional donation of £10 should be given on the day to the workshop leader.

11.00 a.m. to 12.30 p.m. first session
12.30 p.m. to 2 p.m. break for lunch
2.00 p.m. to 3.30 p.m. second session
