THIS MONTH’S PROJECT
Struttin’ like Peacocks: Peacock Folded Fans
The peacock is a symbol of eternal life in the middle east. They believed that the flesh of a peacock did not decay after death and they painted peacocks in peoples tombs. The “eye” in the feather represents the “seeing eye of god.”
Join us while we create beautiful — and functional — folded Peacock fans. With this craft, participants can manually fold and unfold the peacock’s shimmery train feathers. Free.
This month’s art event is recommended for all ages!
