Pomanders Workshop

Join the Voelker Orth Museum for a pomander making workshop! The event offers a hands-on introduction to this winter craft mentioned in literature as early as the 13th century. Pomanders, used to ward off infections or bad odors through the Middle Ages, were particularly popular in the Victorian times when they were fancifully decorated. Made with oranges or other fruit, they offer a sweet fragrance in winter and lend attractive decor to the home. The Museum will provide the supplies, share their history and offer decorating tips and techniques and will be serving hot cocoa on the side. The workshop is suitable for adults, teens and tweens.

When: Saturday, December 16, 1PM-3:30PM

Where: Voelker Orth Museum, 149-19 38th Avenue, Flushing, New York 11354

Admission: $6; $10 per family
