The Friends of Polish Art Annual Szopka Competition

Looking for a family project or something to bring the family closer together? You may have always wanted a Krakow-style creche or szopka (shop-ka) to display in your home during the holidays. Now, is the time to get started on this gratifying project so that you and your family can work together to create a meaningful heirloom.

Each year, a Szopka Competition is held in Krakow, Poland on the first Thursday of December. Architectural elements found within the city of Krakow are used in the designs of the szopka. Detroit Area participants or szopkarze are encouraged to fashion their szopka after one of the local Polish churches.

Leslie Albanna (First Place Winner!) will guide you in making one of these heirlooms!

Come with a good attitude, any materials that you have gathered and get started!

Workshops are on Saturday, October 17th, Thursday, October 22th, November 7th from 1pm - 3pm
