Details

The Polish Museum in Howick shares the beauty of traditional Polish cut-outs called wycinanki, and their unique character within the world of paper art and craft.

Wycinanki are traditionally cut by hand, without drawing the design first, using sheep-shearing scissors.

They were created for decorating the walls and ceiling beams in cottages.

At the beginning of the 19th century designs were cut from ordinary paper shaped as simple geometrical patterns of plants, animals or people.

A fun and creative workshop for adults and children 7 years and older.
