Service Description

Havdalah Spice Box Wood Burning and Candle Making The ceremonial closing of Shabbat through Havdalah is a beautiful way to wake up the senses for a new week. A lovely spice box can allow your family that multisensory refresh moment each week. This session will review this special ceremony and help students create their own decorated spice box through the ancient art of pyrography (wood burning). The wood burning pen and safety gear we will use is especially designed for children ages 8 and up. Students will choose their own blend of spices and braid their own special candle. Jewish Art-Ifacts is a new experiential learning program for curious, crafty, and creative children 8-12+ years old to learn about and make their own special Jewish objects using a variety of different crafting techniques. With each object, we will explore meaning, tradition, culture and heritage. As children bring each item home, they can share what they've learned, how the items are used, and why they are important. We will explore a variety of different objects and techniques including handmade challah covers, dipped candles, basic woodcrafts and embroidery. This is a drop off class for creative, hands-on children, ages 8 - 12+. This spring, we will have 5 workshops and you can choose to sign up for one at a time, or purchase a package to join us for all 5! Sessions are $40 + a $15 materials fee. In addition to creating their own special objects to keep, children will bring home a range of materials after each session to share their new crafting methods with their families.
