Polish Star ornaments, known as porcupine balls, or ‘jezyki‘ in Polish, are old world, traditional ornaments.

They are typically used to decorate a Christmas tree. Made from 25 layers of cut tissue paper circles. Beautiful on the Christmas tree, as a wedding decoration or to enhance a gift. It’s THE perfect handmade ornament – with a surprise at the end!

During class, you’ll also be graced with stories about traditional Polish Christmas.

Registration Includes

The instructor will provide pre-cut tissue paper circles, templates for the circles, pencils, scissors, sewing needles, special thread (secret), glue, and paper punch. There is a moment of great relief and surprise guaranteed!

Feedback from John’s Previous Classes…

“Talented, interesting, funny, and he really created a great atmosphere for learning.”

“He was so cool! Brought examples of his work, so knowledgeable, and also prepared a ‘lecture’ on polish culture. I’d love to take another class from him!”
