On Thursday the class will learn about Omisoka (Japanese New Year) and the lunar calendar making Daruma figures for decortaing andgames.
On Friday, the class will make Christmas centrepieces learning a short history of the Christmas wreath before making flowers for the wreath itself. The class will then use the flowers (and other foliage, baubles and pine cones) to create a centrepiece.
