The Strasburg Heritage Society will present the first of its 2014 craft workshops on Saturday, February 8 when Kathleen Homer teaches a class on the art of Scherenschnitte, the traditional Pennsylvania German craft of scissor cutting.
Participants will learn the basics of the craft and a bit of its history as well. In keeping with the upcoming February holiday, participants will create a Scherenschnitte Valentine complete with beautiful calligraphy envelopes. All materials will be provided. Students should bring a pair of small, sharp scissors, an X-ACTO knife with a #11 blade, and a self healing mat (optional).
The class will be held at 28 East Main Street, Strasburg, PA on Saturday, February 8 from 2:00-4:30 pm. Cost will be $35.00 for Heritage Society members and $40.00 for non-members. To register, or for more information, contact Ann Lainhoff at 717-687-8816.
