We invite you this Saturday afternoon to join our unique workshop and create your very own beautiful Ukrainian motanka doll!

Please join our talented Ukrainian motanka doll artist Svitlana for a special workshop where you will make your own motanka (rug doll).

The motanka (Ukrainian: мотанка) doll is an ancient Ukrainian household item that’s believed to protect and bring blessings to the home and family. Bring a piece of memorable fabric for the doll to make it even more special! The workshop will be held in both English and Ukrainian.


  • lots of fun learning a unique, traditional Ukrainian technique of making motanka dolls while getting to know another culture;
  • shared laughter with both old and new friends;
  • some light refreshments and yummy pastries

No experience is necessary, as you will be provided with all the tools and materials you’ll need
