*Didukhs will be personalized based on each participant's choice of colors, form and material. Photographed is an example. 

In Ukraine the Didukh represents a place where ancestral spirits live. During the Holidays you invite your passed relatives to enjoy the Christmas season along with you and the living. The Didukh is placed in the home in a special area. In various parts of Ukraine the Didukh is removed after the Holiday season. In some households, the Diduck is burned to give warmth and light to those passed. 

This workshop will explore specific traditions centered around creating diducks and each participant with make their own home diduck with winter greenery and dried floral elements grown at Barnswallow. 

Two hour workshop includes all materials, refreshments and festive atmosphere in The Nest, our heated greenhouse at the farm. Maximum of 12 participants for a personalized experience with flower farmer and artist, Meredith Nunnikhoven.
