After the success of last year’s workshop, Nicky Alexander will again be leading a workshop on folding a Froebel Star, a traditional German ornament made from folded paper strips. It is recommended that you bring a good quality wrapping paper that can hold a crease, and be cut into 4 strips, each 1″ wide X 30″ long. Extra paper will be provided if you do not have your own.

This workshop is free for members and $5.00 for non-members, and will take place at the clubhouse in Roy Nicholson Park (intersection of Pine Street North and Eighth Avenue, Timmins), starting at 7:00 p.m.
