Eight Maids a Milking
The Twelve Days of Christmas – Limited Edition Hand Made Ornaments were inspired by the Christmas carol that details a series of increasingly grand gifts given on each of the twelve days of Christmas.
Hand crafted in the Tradeworks Women’s Workshop, from carefully chosen, beautiful, and exotic British Columbia blue-stained beetle kill pine, these ornaments are sure to become treasured heirlooms.
Approximately three inches in diameter, each ornament is painstakingly created through a seven stage process utilizing environmentally friendly materials in the Women’s Workshop. Not only does this multi-stage process allow for artistically intricate design, it also provides a collaborative work environment where women become less isolated, discover hidden talents and work together to build a better future for their families.
The Tradeworks Women’s Workshop provides training and employment for Vancouver’s inner-city women who want to build self-confidence, skills and workplace experience.
Whether you are purchasing these ornaments for yourself or as a gift, you can be assured that all profits go directly into program participants’ wages and educational bursaries.
