Please join us at Pharsalia for a fun Victorian Scrap Ornament Workshop on Thursday, November 16 at 10:00 a.m. with Mary Kathryn McIntosh.
Learn to make unique ornaments that were popular in the 19th century using scraps from Germany, antique images, cardboard and crepe paper. The workshop will include the things you will need to complete 5 ornaments in class plus additional materials. In days long past, housewives followed Godey's Lady Book and other period magazines to enhance their homes for the holidays. Our ornaments are inspired by their ideas and creativity. Please bring pointed scissors with you to the workshop.
Bring a friend and enjoy making beautiful ornaments for your home or as a gift. A wonderful catered lunch is included in the fee for $75.00.

Mary Kathryn founded Lynchburg Historic Tours in 2007. She is active in The Golden Glow of Christmas Past, an international organization devoted to the collecting and study of early Christmas memorabilia.
