Event description

Description

Just in time for Advent season, join Midstate coordinator Allison Stillwell Young to learn how to make beautiful Swedish Advent star ornaments for your tree or just to hang around your house. The stars in class will be made from the pages of old books, but you can use any kind of paper you'd like for others!

What are Swedish Advent stars? In Sweden, there isn't much light during the winter, so homes all across Sweden have lit stars in their windows during Advent. On 13 December, they have a celebration of light in Luciadagen, or Lucia Day, which is a massive celebration across the whole of Sweden. These stars aren't lit, but they're of the style that people make decorative stars out of straw in Sweden.

All supplies will be provided for one star that will be made in the class, but if you want to make more stars, most supplies are available at Smart! We will also have gingersnaps and mulled blackcurrant juice for refreshments during class.

The class cost will be $15, but additional donations to PSI Tennessee are greatly appreciated! Class cost can be paid via Venmo or with cash at the event.
