Immerse yourself in a traditional Polish artform entwined with modern sensibilities, with our Pajoke workshop.
Pajaki (pah-yonk-ee) are traditional Polish chandeliers crafted from rye straw and paper. Made by country women as decorations for their homes for occasions like Christmas, Easter, weddings and christenings, their history dates back to the mid-18th century. 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 considered a symbol of harvest and happiness.
Karolina Merska worked with participants in an intensive 8 hour workshop to create contemporary Pajaki Chandeliers passing on this craft and design tradition.
