Pomanders for your Christmas Stocking (Half-Day workshop) - Thursday 3rd December 2020
10am - 12.30pm (ish) A complimentary lunch is included.
A half-day class on how to make Pomanders. This festive classic dates as far back to medieval times. They were used to disperse fragrant perfumes and to ward off evil spirits. According to legend their origin begins with St. Nicholas who dropped golden nuggets down the chimney to pay for the dowries for the three daughters of a poor man. They fell into the stockings which were hung to dry by the fireplace. That’s why we hang them there every Christmas Eve. Moreover, that explains the tradition to place an orange, or indeed, a pomander at the toe the stocking for each recipient!
