Midwinter Decorations

Green Man Gallery, Buxton

From naughty Yulelad decorations for a branch to pom-poms for trees, windows, noses, ears and anywhere you like, join the Stone and Water team to make some lively and unusual festive decorations! We will be recycling old cards into lovely boxes (bring some of yours if you have old cards)  and turning stray ends of wool, ribbon and thin fabric (again bring some if you have any – but not if you are wearing it!).

 

In Iceland, there are stories of the children of the trolls Grylla and Leppaludi who come to town over the Christmas season looking for badly-behaved children. The stories started there but the Yule Lads have become a bit gentler and maybe a bit less fearsome and a bit more tricksy over the years. A long way from Iceland, we still reckon there could be some Yule Lads and Yule Lasses causing a bit of mischief in the houses of Buxton over the next next few weeks. We’ll be making our own Yule-kids to hang in the branches of our trees. Who would you add? Stocking Snaffler? Cracker Cruncher? Help us design our own Yule trouble-makers!

Join the Stone and Water team to make your own personal and distinctive decorations for this festive season
