Event Details

The concept of fika is simple. It is the Swedish tradition of taking a break in the day for coffee. It is enjoyed most with friends and serves as a time of connecting, a time for slowing down. In this workshop, we will create table accessories to enhance your enjoyment of fika. We will paint cups and plates, as well as a napkin holder with the traditional Swedish woven heart and a candleholder to add the warmth of hygge. A round or rectangular placemat or runner will also be available. The class will be taught in acrylics and patterns will be given for all of the pieces. An afternoon fika, with traditional baked goods, will be provided both days by Darlene Fossum-Martin. Recipes will be made available!
