Over 20 participants came and joined us to make a traditional Ukrainian wreath - Vinok. The workshop was led by the Ukrainian community members, and 10 people were involved in teaching making wreaths.
The flower wreath remains part of Ukrainian national attire and is worn on festive occasions and on holy days, and increasingly in daily life as a part of a wider cultural revival.
The workshop took approximately 2 hours, everyone went home with their own flower wreath and we were happy to share a part of our traditional heritage with New Zealanders.
