Folk Art Workshops

Polish heritage is rich with various folk arts that members and their friends can learn to create for themselves. Workshops are given by Dorothy Kostecka-Wieczerzak, General Secretary of the Association, who has taught Polish folk art courses at the Kosciuszko Foundation in New York City. Everyone is welcome to join us. Check the calendar of events for dates and times, and register by calling the Home Office at (201) 935-2807 or by sending an e-mail to info@sonsofpoland.org.
