No Christmas tree is complete without a topper, and usually, the topper is a star. An upcoming workshop explores the star, a symbol that also represents many other holidays around the world.
The art workshop, "Make Star Wire Sculptures," explores how different cultures relate to stars and holidays of the star symbol. It is set for Dec. 4 from 4:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. at the St. Michael Public Library.
Adults, teens and children seven and older are invited to participate in making three-dimensional sculptures to take home. The workshop will include materials such as metal wires, templates and beads.
Attendance is limited to 20, and preregistration is required. The program is funded in part by Minnesota’s Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
