Event details

Discover new designs and learn the Polish folk art of wycinanki (paper cut-outs) in this fun and creative workshop for adults and children seven years and older.

The Polish Heritage Trust Museum brings to life the beauty of these traditional designs from the regions of Kurpie and Lowicz, and their unique features among other cultures' paper craft.

At the beginning of the 19th century designs were cut and shaped as simple geometrical patterns of plants, animals or people. Later, when coloured decorative papers became more available, complex patterns and multi-coloured cut-outs made of layers of different colours and shapes emerged.

After the workshop, enjoy the displays of wycinanki at the museum.
