Join artist Karolina Merska for a Pajaki making workshop.

During the workshop Karolina will introduce you to a rich history of unique Polish rye and straw chandeliers called “Pajaki.”

Pajaki (pah-yonk-ee) are traditional Polish chandeliers made from rye straw and paper. Their history dates back to the mid-18th century. Made by country women as decorations for their homes especially for Christmas, Easter, as well as for weddings and christenings. Suspended from a ceiling in a main room, amongst colourful paper cut-outs, paintings and paper flowers they became a popular decoration in polish village houses. They were a symbol of harvest and happiness in New Year.

Today the tradition is practised less and less. Karolina keeps Pajaki tradition alive.

Karolina will teach you how to create a structure which later will be decorated with 5 traditional “kalinka” pom poms. “Kalinka” pom pom is made of 15 layers of hand twisted tissue paper.

By the end of a workshop you will learn some new unique skills and take a beautiful colourful pajaki with you to decorate your house.
