Working with the hamsa, or hamesh, the multicultural symbol of an open hand, explore the spiritual side of the holidays and celebrate the universal human desire for protection and peace. Trace your hand, or use a template, to make a palm-shaped amulet. Decorate it with winter scenes from Wave Hill or with natural materials found on the grounds. Embellish with beads, yar, or sequins to form a poignant hanging. Free admission to the grounds until noon.
