Margaret Ames will be at Woodlawn from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm for an ongoing demonstration of how to make a Froebel star, just in time for Christmas. A Froebel star is a Christmas decoration made of paper, common in Germany. The three-dimentional Froebel star is assembled from four identical paper strips, then dipped into hot wax and sprinkled with glitter after being folded. Join us between 10:00 am and 3:00 pm to make your own Froebel star. This free workshop is open to 10 years and older. Donations are greatly appreciated. For details, visit
