Fahnenschwingen Classes

The Swiss Center of North America remains excited to have sponsored Fahnenschwingen classes this spring.
Students were taught by Damion Babler, a member of the New Glarus Jodlerklub as well as flag thrower who is looking forward to teaching this Swiss tradition to a younger generation. Students are learning basic moves and techniques.
 
The Swiss Center of North America is sponsoring Fahnenschwingen through a generous grant from the New Glarus Community Foundation which allowed the Swiss Center to purchase 10 authentic throwing flags from Switzerland for $300 per flag and stick.
 
These young people performed in the New Glarus area at Volkfest, the Tell Play and Cheese Days.

Learning the Swiss Folk Art of Scherenschnitte: Three classes complete at the Swiss Center.  Interest was so high that a third class was added.  Swiss Center's Beth Zurbuchen took the class and despite her fear of small tools for artistic work--she LOVED it.  You will too.  Enjoy the pictures below.
