About this Event

Fanal Art Workshop

Join us for a fun and creative workshop making fanals at P.A.P Haitian Cuisine! Get ready to unleash your inner artist and explore your creative side while learning more about this Haitian holiday cultural practice. A fanal is a traditional Haitian Christmas lantern – see links below for more background information.

Lead Teaching Artist Samsara will be teaching drop-in fanal workshop on December 3, 2023, 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm, at Port au Prince Haitian Cuisine, 7912 Georgia Ave, Silver Spring, MD 20910. Samsara will teach workshop participants how to make houses and ornaments.

Fanals will be exhibited at the Embassy of Haiti on Dec. 9, 2023, in partnership with AHP and Komite Ayiti.

The workshops are open to ages 5 to adults. Workshops are free and supplies are provided, but older participants are encouraged to bring their own cutting tools, e.g., exacto pen knives/sharper scissors, as we will provide child-safe cutting tools. Assistance from parents (with or without an arts background) is welcome to manage the volume of children we expect. Portions of the workshops will be photographed/video-recorded for display on the social media feeds of co-sponsoring organizations/teaching artist.

Please note that we will overlap with the Capoeira teacher in the same space/time who will be having an open house for those who wish to learn more about Capoeira and upcoming progressive classes.
